Plane riot? Not with this pair of cops!

Even when they’re on vacation, these police officers don’t leave a sense of dangerous situations at home – and instead of switching off, they can switch on at just the right moment. On a flight from Frankfurt to Vancouver shortly before New Year’s Eve, two Austrian police officers proved this, as the Interior Ministry in Vienna announced on Sunday. According to this, a passenger threatened two hours after take-off and thus endangering the safety on board. A pair of Austrian police officers stepped in and corrected the man with the cable ties. The ministry did not wish to provide details about the person due to the jurisdiction of the Canadian authorities.

Interior Minister: “It was brave, wise and courageous to intervene”

According to the ministry, policemen and policemen from the State Police Department of Lower Austria made judicious contact with the pilot and crew of the aircraft before getting into the situation and recovering the person by technical means. Austrian patrol officers guarded the passenger for hours until he landed in Canada, where he was handed over to the authorities – and the couple began their well-being. According to the information, the intervention of both took place in coordination with the responsible security officials in Canada and Germany.

In the police report, Austrian Interior Minister Gerhard Kerner praised the heroic action: “Each passenger who disrupts operations can seriously jeopardize the safety of a flight. I am proud of my two employees. – His intervention was courageous, intelligent and courageous. This intervention shows once again how committed the professional and police officers in Austria are, even when they are off duty and on leave.”

The Austrian Air Marshal Service, provided by officers of the CoBRA commandos, also praised the intervention of the two police officers. According to a senior EKO Cobra official, safety is a top priority in aviation, which is why it was the right decision to dominate the man. (dpa/dbo)
