Man Falls Asleep On UA Flight And Ends Up Locked In Plane

Posted: Updated:

There's nothing unusual about falling asleep on your flight, but one man woke up to find that he was locked inside the plane.

Tom Wagoner fell asleep on a United Airlines flight from Louisiana to Los Angeles.

When he woke up, he was all alone, with no way out!

"I woke up and the lights were out. I was like, ‘what's going on?' I thought maybe it was a layover."

However, Tom soon realized that it was not a layover, because all the other passengers were gone and there was no luggage in any of the compartments.

Tom called his girlfriend for help.

"I called my girlfriend, and she thought I was crazy. I said, 'Debbie I'm locked on the plane.' She said, 'Tommy, stop.' I said, 'I'm telling you the truth; you better call somebody and get me off this plane.' "

The airline claims they did do a thorough walk-through. They say they do not know how they missed him.

"What if I had a medical condition or something, you know? What if I had a heart attack and I was dead? You just shut the plane and leave somebody on there? It's the way I look at it," Wagoner said.

United Airlines gave the man a 250 dollar voucher, a bag of toiletries and an apology.
