An airplane carrying about 179 passengers, including a Hopkinsville man had to be diverted today after a woman onboard claimed to have a device surgically implanted inside her.
Tony Harbold, the father of 22-year old Campbellsville University student John Harbold, who was on the flight describes what his son mentioned about the woman.
Mr. Harbold said his son was on his way back from a mission trip from Africa when his flight from Paris, France to Charlotte, North Carolina was diverted to Bangor, Maine and didn’t know his son was possibly in danger.
Two fighter jets at one point flew alongside the airplane as it made its way to its unexpected stop in Maine.
All passengers onboard the flight, including nine crew members were unharmed are en route to their original destinations.
