Teen duct-taped to seat after trying to kick out plane’s window


Apparently duct tape is the tool of choice for flight attendants when it comes to dealing with disruptive passengers. An American Airlines flight from Maui to Los Angeles was diverted to Honolulu after a 13-year-old boy started causing trouble. Witnesses told CBSN that the boy tried to kick out the window next to his seat, and became physical with his mother about an hour into the flight. That’s when fellow passengers stepped in to help restrain the boy, and a flight attendant appears to duct-tape him to his seat. Footage posted by the station shows masked passengers restraining the wild teen. One flight attendant is seen leaving the group, then returning with a roll of grey duct tape. The boy was reportedly taken into custody in Honolulu and no one was injured.
