Watch: Delta Fight Attendant Tackles Would-Be Hijacker 

Delta Flight 386 from Los Angeles to Nashville on Friday was diverted to New Mexico after a passenger attempted to breach the cockpit and hijack the plane.

Albuquerque International Sunport received distress calls from the plane after a passenger attempted to breach the cabin, airport spokeswoman Stephanie Kitts, who was quoted by USA Today

Cellphone video captured the incident and one brave flight attendant who “tackled and zip-tied the man before anyone was harmed,” said Fox 11 Los Angeles

Another video shows the would-be hijacker was zip-tied with his hands behind his back. 

Twitter handle “@1WaySuggs” uploaded both videos to Twitter which have since gone viral. He tweeted, “y’all a n**ga tried to hijack my plane on God we just had to emergency land the done hogtied this nigga up on God my life wild.” 

A photo of the flight attendant who apprehended the passenger was later seen seated with hands together and his head down after the incident. He must have had so much adrenaline running through his body after his heroic action. 

When the flight landed in New Mexico, airport police took the man into custody, who was later turned into the Albuquerque FBI. 

On Friday evening, Albuquerque FBI tweeted: “The #FBI is responding to a report of a diverted flight at @ABQSunport . There is no threat to the public at this time.” 

Delta released a statement but left out the fact that a passenger attempted to hijack the plane. Delta spokesman Anthony Black said Flight 386 landed without incident in Albuquerque, and he praised the crew and passengers on the flight for “detaining an unruly passenger.” 

At the time, the 737-900 had 162 passengers and six crew members.
