Passenger Attacks with a prosthetic leg.

A rather drink woman on-board a Thomson Airlines flight from Tunisia caused a bit of a stir when she began swearing, slapped a child, and threw food at cabin crew before tossing her prosthetic leg at them.
The female passenger, 48, had her meltdown on Thomson Airlines flight 297 from Enfindha in Tunisia bound for Edinburgh in Scotland.   “She was shouting ‘I want cigarettes’ and that she wanted a parachute to jump off the plane,” fellow passenger John Smith, 48, told Edinburgh Evening News
“She slapped a young girl and then assaulted the cabin crew with her prosthetic leg. They took it off her, but she started kicking them with her good leg.  It sounds funny, but it was not a laughing matter at the time. It was serious. She was totally drunk. It was pretty shocking.”

Members of the cabin crew managed to restrain the Scottish woman, placing her in handcuffs as the pilot diverted the flight to Gatwick Airport, here Sussex Police officers were waiting. “She embarrassed everybody on the flight. A lot of people were upset about it, especially those with children.”said Mr Smith.
Sussex Police confirmed the unemployed woman was arrested on suspicion of using threatening behaviour while aboard the flight. “The flight was diverted into Gatwick after it was alleged the woman had been abusive and had thrown a prosthetic leg and food at cabin crew.”
