    An American Airlines flight bound for Chicago was forced to make a diversion this week after passengers duct-taped a man’s legs to restrain him after he allegedly attempted to open the emergency door mid-flight.

    American Airlines confirmed to People that flight 1219 was heading to O’Hare Airport before  “a disturbance in the cabin involving a disruptive customer,” forced the plane to turn around shortly after take off.

    A video posted to ‘X’ shows the fast action of fellow passengers grabbing the man and preventing him from opening the emergency door.

    Passengers successfully restrain the man and use duct tape to tie his hands and legs before pulling him down the aisle to the back of the plane.

    “They got him, they got him,” one passenger can be heard saying.
