When a woman on a United Airlines flight was finished using the loo, she realized she was trapped. The door wouldn't open, even with the help of flight crew members. So the plane, flying from Washington DC to San Francisco, made an emergency landing in Denver.
According to NBC:
The passenger was safely freed from the bathroom once the aircraft landed. It's not clear how long the customer was trapped.
Well folks it's never a dull moment on @united , we have to make an "emergency landing" in Denver because a passenger got stuck in the bathroom. You can't make this up…also the Wi-Fi is crappy and there is no way for me to charge my phone, happy travels. #unitedairlines pic.twitter.com/FHieakiO7Z

A video posted on Twitter shows several people trying to open the jammed door. A spokesperson for the airport said the Denver Fire Department responded to the scene to assist in getting the passenger out.
There's never a dull moment when flying the friendly skies.
