...A distraught Haines tried to open the plane's emergency exit, physically lashed out at flight attendants and screamed she was going to "Kill everyone" on board.
...Witnesses described Haines as acting "Possessed" and said that many of the 206 passengers feared for their lives, per BBC. Two Royal Air Force fighter planes rushed to escort the commercial aircraft in making an emergency landing in Essex, England, while the woman was physically restrained for the rest of the trip.
