“I slept maybe less than half of my flight of an hour and a half,” said Adams. The passenger admitted that she thought she had a nightmare when she woke up several hours after the plane landed in complete darkness and described the event as “terrible”.
The woman wanted to call a friend, but her phone’s battery was exhausted and it was impossible to charge her on the plane without power. Adams, who “wanted to get out of this nightmare as soon as possible” found a flashlight and managed to open the main door of the plane, but then he realized that he was at a height of about 15 meters, without stairs, and unable to jump.
It is unknown how long Adams spent near the aircraft door signaling with the flashlight before an airport employee noticed it. The man, who was carrying a luggage cart, was “surprised to see her”, he said and helped her leave the plane.
In turn, Air Canada representatives stated that they are investigating the case and are in contact with the passenger.
