Last week, a China Southern Airlines airplane was forced to stop after an unstable man made a scene in the cabin.

It was reported that just five minutes into the flight from Wuhan to Harbin, a passenger suddenly threw money on ground and shouted, “Someone is trying to get me. I want to go up into the sky.”

The flights crew managed to calm him down for 6 or 7 minutes, then the man suddenly charged to the cockpit. Security men and other travellers joined hands in restraining him. The traveler was then captured tied into his seat. 

After about 20 minutes, the plane landed in the Zhengzhou Airport in Henan province. The man was taken off the plane with his luggage. He was reported to be mentally unstable and brought home by his family. The flight later made a second departure.
