Woman trapped in toilet for takeoff. An aeroplane toilet can be unpleasant at the best of times, so it is the last place you would want to find yourself trapped come take-off. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happened to one unlucky young woman yesterday, according to the Daily Mail.
The woman had left her seat to use the on-board lavatory before the flight had taken off, and was only noticed by cabin crew as she attempted to leave the toilet. According to the report, the crew ‘screamed’ at the woman to get back inside, as it was too dangerous for her to make her way back to her seat. She was only allowed to leave the toilet once the plane had ascended and the seatbelt signs had been switched off.
It’s believed that due to delays, there was a rush for the Gatwick-bound plane to take off, which meant the toilets were not properly checked.
