Passengers panic as Delta flight plunges nearly 30000 feet in

Asked by taboyilek on 2019-09-19

Delta passengers on their way from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, received a major scare Wednesday as their plane dropped nearly 30,000 feet in the space of under eight minutes, forcing a diversion to Tampa.

Data from flight-tracking site FlightAware shows Delta Flight 2353 diving from an altitude of 39,000 feet to 9,975 feet in the span of about 7 ½ minutes.

“While in flight between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale Delta flight 2353 made a rapid, controlled descent due to a possible aircraft depressurization issue," Delta spokesman Anthony Black told USA TODAY. He added that the aircraft is being evaluated by maintenance technicians.

"Air masks – the oxygen masks dropped – from the top of the plane. Chaos sort of ensued amongst the passengers," passenger Harris Dewoskin said told Atlanta news station WSB-TV.

Although a flight attendant told passengers not to panic, Dewoskin said "It was a hectic moment so the passengers around me — a lot of people were kind of hyperventilating."

Passenger Tiffany Sawyer tweeted her compliments to the flight crew, who she says were "awesome" at "keeping people calm."
