“I could hear a lot of screaming in the back. One of the passengers was punching the [overhead seat] lights,” said James Tennell, who was flying with Ashley Decker. “Passengers were telling me he was wanting to take the plane down,” he said.

“He was trying to punch them, punch the windows,” Decker said. “It was kind of scary. 9/11 immediately went into my head,” she said.

Tennell, from Forsyth County, tells FOX 5 he once worked as a former corrections officer. He said by instinct, he jumped out of his seat and ran to the back of the plane where the unruly passenger locked himself in the bathroom.

“Somebody had to do something,” Tennell said.

Another man, who identified himself as working for the Coast Guard, also ran to help.
