VIDEO shows a plane passenger being pinned down by other travelers after he reportedly tried to open an emergency door mid-air. The chaos erupted on an American Airlines flight as it was headed from Albuquerque to Chicago on Tuesday. A second video on social media showed police escorting a man off the plane after it returned to Albuquerque for an emergency landing. Multiple passengers onboard the plane described the shocking situation on X, formerly known as Twitter. The Wonton Don (@DonnieDoesWorld) said he was sleeping in his seat when he was stirred awake "by a man trying to aggressively open the airplane door 4 rows back."
