Woman falls asleep on flight, wakes up ‘alone’ and ‘locked up’ in empty plane
Tiffani Adams was on her way home to Toronto after visiting a friend in Quebec when “one of the best weekends I’ve ever had” turned into a nightmare.
She woke up in a cold, dark Air Canada jet a few hours after it landed at Toronto International Airport to discover she was left sleeping on the plane.
Adams described the harrowing experience in which she was unable to recharge her phone while stuck inside the parked aircraft, which sent her into a panic attack.
Left to grope around the plane for some way to alert someone she was still on board, Adams eventually found a flashlight in the cockpit, and opened one of the plane’s doors. 亚当斯在飞机上到处搜寻，准备让人察觉飞机上还有人，末了她终于在驾驶舱找到了一个手电筒，随即她打开了飞机门。
Hanging 40 or 50 feet above the pavement, she flashed the light at distant ground crews until someone driving a luggage truck saw her and came to the rescue.
Air Canada officials gave her a ride home and have been in contact with her since, but Adams is still recovering from the ordeal.
“I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” she wrote in her post.
