"I'm Stuck In This Plane": Napping Worker Trapped in Jet's Cargo Called 911

The airport worker who woke up from a nap and found himself trapped in the baggage compartment of an airborne jet called 911 in a panic from the belly of Alaska Airlines Flight 448 this week, NBC News reported. In the 911 call, released earlier Thursday, the man never makes it clear to a confused but persistent female operator that he's an airport worker trapped in the plane's sealed baggage hold. "I'm inside a plane. I feel like it's moving in the air," he tells the operator. "Flight 448. Can you please tell somebody stop it?" The man told NBC News Thursday in a brief phone interview that he feels "good" and was back working as a contract employee at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. A spokeswoman for Alaska Airlines told NBC News that he had been permanently barred from working for the airline. Read »

Anger Marks 1st Anniversary of S. Korean Ferry Disaster

Angry relatives of passengers who drowned in the South Korean ferry sinking snubbed the country’s president on the disaster's anniversary Thursday, The Associated Press reported. Grief mixed with fury as relatives mourned the 304 victims of the ferry Sewol, most of whom were high school students. Relatives blocked the prime minister from attending a mourning event. There's frustration among those who see the government as having failed to improve safety standards and hold high-level officials accountable. President Park Geun-hye visited a small port near the site of the sinking to offer her condolences to bereaved relatives, but most refused to meet her. Park also gave a speech to announce ship salvaging plans for the first time. She provided few details, however, saying only the salvage operation would happen "as soon as possible." Read »
