The Republic Airways-operated Delta flight originates from Raleigh, North Carolina, and touched without incident, but it was met on the runway by the police.
Stacy Herbert posted about the incident on Twitter and wrote: "A young woman, perhaps early in her twenties, became a suicide and tried to open the door of the plane when we came down to the LGA. Her father pulled her from the door. the head that she needed to open the door and die, I was not afraid when I knew the door could not be opened, but her scream was scary, and she sat behind us when she was pulled back to her seat and it was terrible to see her suicide tank. "
The authorities said the passenger made comments about wanting his own life and acted in a way that could have been a danger to himself and others and had to be held firm.
"She appeared suicide and she just put inches from me and screamed at her head," Herbert Eyewitness News told a Twitter DM. "She screamed to want to die."
In sound sent at liveatc.net from LaGuardia's air traffic, the pilot tells the tower that there is an emergency on board.
"We only had a disturbed, psychologically disturbed passenger who tried to open the front door," the pilot said. "Everything is under control now. We will taxi to the gate."
No damage was reported and the passenger was removed from the aircraft.
The 20-year-old woman was taken to the Lenox Hill Hospital for evaluation, and the Port Authority Police made statements from the passengers.
Republic Airways did not want to confirm the incident, except to issue a statement, partly read: "We are aware of the social media report related to the aircraft and look at it, but what I can tell you now is that the plane landed uneventfully and proceeded to its gate. "
The authorities emphasize that no matter what the woman tried to do, the air doors are designed so that they do not open midway, and that negative pressure does not allow the door to open.
