Flight diverted after passenger undresses in seat
AP on Yahoo ^ | 7/1/09 | AP

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A cross-country US Airways flight was diverted to Albuquerque after a male passenger removed his clothing mid-flight. Dan Jiron, a spokesman for the Albuquerque airport, said 50-year-old Keith Wright of New York disrobed Tuesday while sitting in his seat in the back of the aircraft. He said Wright was unresponsive when a flight attendant asked him repeatedly to get dressed and refused to be covered with a blanket.

Jiron said law enforcement employees who were passengers on the plane helped subdue and handcuff Wright before the flight landed. The FBI said Wright is in federal custody on a charge of interfering with flight crew members and attendants.

So the guy was too warm — and, instead of adjusting his overhead air vent, they handcuffed him — and called the FBI...?

Why does it always have to be the 50 year old male? How come it’s never the 25 year old female?

Jerry: O-K. You realize of course, you’re naked?

Naked man: Naked, dressed. I don’t see any difference.

Jerry: You oughta’ sit here. There is a difference.

Naked man: You got something against naked body?

Jerry: I got something against yours. How about a couple of deep knee bends, maybe a squat thrust?

Naked man: Who’s got time for squat thrusts?

Jerry: All right, how about skipping breakfast. I’m guessing you’re not a ‘half-grapefruit and black coffee’ guy.

Naked man: I like a good breakfast.

Jerry: I understand, I like good breakfast. Long as you don’t wind up trapped in a room with bib overalls and pigtails, being counseled by Dick Gregory.

Naked man: I’m not ashamed of my body.

Jerry: That’s your problem, you should be.

The reporter apparently does not know the difference between “unresponsive” (an inability to respond) and “non-responsive” (an unwillingness to respond).

What do they teach these folks in journalism school?

Sorry. It was not a serious question.

A friend's wife was recently having mental problems. She was diagnosed with a heart problem such that she was only getting about 15% of normal circulation.

Airplanes don't pressurize their cabins at a full one atmosphere. I wonder if a person with an undiagnosed problem like my friend's wife had could become irrational due to the combination of the altitude and the circulation problem.

FWIW, I have experienced altitude related hypoxia on an airplane. I became gradually irrational and incapable of concentrating on the task at hand, then blacked out. Teammate observed the problem and assisted in correcting O2 supply failure. Was fully alert in < 5 minutes. YMMV
