A PASSENGER on a flight in northern Canada opened the aircraft’s door and leapt to his death, making the freezing cabin depressurise at 23,000 feet.
Police Sgt Harold Trupish said the incident happened on a flight to Cambridge Bay in western Nunavut.
The twin-engined turboprop was about 178km from the airport when the man jumped.
The pilots reported the 20-year-old passenger had become unruly and that they were unable to prevent him from jumping. Police are searching for the body of the unnamed man.
