Man who caused scare at GAIA is under medical observation

Police say the man who triggered a security alarm at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday after he reportedly made threats on board Air Canada flight 1966 is currently under medical observation.


Lawmen are still withholding his name and nationality but have confirmed that he is 66-years-old.

It is still not clear whether he will be charged.

The man who had to be restrained on board the five-hour flight from Toronto was taken into custody as the other 113 passengers were delayed on the tarmac for more than two hours. No one was injured during the incident.

Investigations are continuing.

    No-one knows what tomorrow holds–such accident can happen to anyone, especially those who suffers from flight -fear nerves, some take chemical tablets, some abuse alcohol.

    Mental illness is a very serious thing. Maybe this person has had a history that will, once brought to light that could render him as mentally ill, which in the final analysis may have been the cause for his erratic behavior. Lets hope he gets the help needed .
