A woman who flew on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver, Canada, in 2015 with a broken leg was able to talk her way out of a difficult situation and was later praised for her bravery.
The flight attendant had a broken left leg when she was forced to land the plane.
It was the first time she’d ever had to make a choice between her safety and the safety of the passengers.
The woman, who asked not to be named, told The Canadian Press the incident took place as the plane was landing in Vancouver.
She said the plane landed at around 11 p.m.
ET and the crew asked her to wait until the plane had cleared the airport before asking for her identification.
She was shocked and said she immediately started screaming.
She started screaming for the man, who had been seated next to her, to open his door.
She told CBC News she thought the man was going to open it and the plane would hit him.
She then said she began screaming for him to open the door and she could hear his screams and could hear him trying to get up.
When she finally opened the door, she said, she could see the man standing over her.
The man was standing over the woman in a chair, and the woman’s leg was broken, she told CBC.
“I was like, ‘This is ridiculous, this is ridiculous,’ ” she said.
The plane landed safely, and after the flight attendant talked her way into the seat next to him, the crew allowed her to go home.
“She’s still not over the trauma of what she went through,” said Peter Bevan, the airline’s president of flight operations.
“This is a very brave woman.”
Bevan said the airline was proud of the woman.
“It’s a testament to the amazing courage and resilience of this flight attendant who stood up for herself, her family and everyone she cared about,” he said.
Bevan and other passengers said the incident was a lesson learned for all.
“A very courageous flight attendant.
She stood up and she stood up because she’s a woman, and that’s what a flight attendant should do,” said passenger and flight attendant, Kelli McArthur.
“The best thing she could have done was stay calm and continue with her flight.”
Bevens plane landed in Vancouver’s West Vancouver International Airport and the incident prompted an investigation by the Transportation Safety Board.
It concluded that the pilot made the right decision and the man made the wrong one.
The Transportation Safety Bureau found the man should have been seated closer to the aisle and the flight attendants were in the wrong place.
It also determined the man’s actions were in violation of the Transportation Act.
The Canadian Civil Aviation Safety Board said in a statement it has opened an investigation into the incident.
“We are aware of the incident involving the Canadian flight attendant and are in the process of examining its findings,” the agency said in an emailed statement.
