A passenger attempted to eat his phone in an easyJet plane, forced an emergency landing in Edinburgh

Hello everyone.
On January of 2020, in a flight from Manchester to Iceland (Reykjavik) is diverted to Edinburgh.
Why? Because a drunk passenger verbally assaults crew.
He also attempted to eat his own mobile phone.
He reportedly pulled out his phone and began disassembling it and chewing on the pieces.
Then, the battery fell from the phone and started to smell on the seat.

A nearby attendant “scooped the battery up and placed it in a cup of water to cool it down” to avoid a potential fire…

What do you think?

By putting it in your mouth, taking a bite, chewing, and swallowing.

I don’t know but this sounds like something someone from Florida would do. Also, did it taste good? No offense to those from Florida here.

Classic Florida Man occurrence in the U.S. As for a more classy Europe, this sounds wild.

Poor guy just wanted something to eat. Airplane food is really that bad lol.

Who said I’d eaten a phone.

It was a pretty basic question and luckily I was taught how to eat hard food as a kid.

You seem quite experienced in the ways of eating things.

This reminds me of the time a while ago when I actually bit my phone in a fit of rage and cracked the screen. I think I was trying to build something in SimplePlanes and it just wasn’t working.

Oooookay 😂

This is what we’ve come to. Eating phones. Great.

I guess he took it being called “Apple” a little too literally maybe?

Kudos to the FA who avoided the fire though.

I hope we see penalties resulting from this as such a behaviour is not only inappropriate but also extremely dangerous (as you can see with the battery).

Definitely not acceptable to be drunk onboard an airplane.

Honey, eat your phone!

There are starving people in China who would love to eat that!
