Flying high

Leave it to a druggie to screw up everyone travel plans. This plane was in line on the taxiway when this clown decides to gain some more altitude before takeoff.
All the crew had to do was open a cabin door and toss this schmuck out onto the grass, then call the Society of Quivering, Sensitive Liberal Rescuers to get him before he reached ambient temperature. Meanwhile, other passengers could have been on their way with only a minor delay.

Passenger’s overdose forces plane back to gate at JFK

A plane that was about to depart Kennedy Airport for Florida was forced to return to the gate Wednesday when a 24-year-old man overdosed on heroin and anxiety medication, officials said.

The JetBlue plane was on the taxiway and about to take off when the man, who lives in Bethpage, Long Island, started foaming at the mouth around 10:50 p.m.

The flight returned to the terminal and was boarded by Port Authority cops Eric Stern and Sean Pomerantz, who found the distressed man floating in and out of consciousness.

The man also appeared confused and was having trouble breathing, officials said.

The officers determined the man was under the influence of heroin and anti-anxiety pills and administered a dose of Narcan, a drug that reverses the effects of an overdose.

The man’s condition improved and he was rushed to Jamaica Hospital for treatment, officials said.
