Court documents show that a United Airlines flight from California to Japan was diverted to Alaska when an irate passenger became violent and threatened to “kill” a crew member after he was denied more alcohol. 51-year-old Seksan Kumtong was arrested Sunday after hitting the lead flight attendant while flying on United Airlines Flight 32 from Los Angeles to Narita, Japan. The plane was ultimately forced to land in Anchorage after Kumtong grabbed the United employee by the neck and tie and tried to pull them to the ground. “I will kill you,” Kumtong screamed during the in-flight attack. Prior to the violent outburst, Kumtong had been “acting strangely” by banging on occupied bathroom doors, shouting, and acting unruly.

A North Carolina woman whose hands were crushed by her car while she was changing a flat tire used her toes to dial 911 with her cellphone, authorities in South Carolina said Sunday. The Charlotte woman, 54, spent 35 minutes in "excruciating pain" trying to slip off a shoe and manipulate her phone, Colleton County Fire-Rescue said in a statement. She pulled over on a dark section of the highway and was putting on a spare tire when the jack slipped and the car fell on her hands, the statement said. After many attempts to dial 911 with her foot, the woman succeeded, the statement said. Eight minutes later, first responders were able to free one of her hands using a prybar, the statement said. Firefighters used a hydraulic lift to free her other hand. Her hands and fingers suffered severe damage, and she was taken to a trauma center at a local hospital, the statement said.
