During the Asiana Airlines토토사이트 “scary landing,” there was a passenger who managed to restrain the gunman in his 30s. Lee Yoon-jun, 48, was seated next to the gunman on the plane.
“Suddenly, my hat and headset flew off, so I looked up and the door was open,” Lee said in a recent interview with Yonhap News Agency, recalling the incident on the flight from Jeju to Daegu on Sept. 26. “I felt like he (the shooter) was smiling at me,” he said.
Within seconds, the plane’s wheels touched down on the runway, and Lee heard a “pop” and the sound of a belt being unbuckled next to him. The shooter had unbuckled his seatbelt and was on his feet. He looked back to find himself hanging on the wall next to the emergency door in front of the open door.

A flight attendant yelled, “Help!” and Lee reached out with his left arm and grabbed the attacker by the nape of the neck, subduing him. Unable to get up because he was wearing a seatbelt, Lee said he struggled with both hands around the man’s neck to keep him from jumping. After a few seconds of struggling, three or four flight attendants came running. One after another, passengers came to help. They dragged him down the aisle inside the plane. The plane was still running down the runway after landing.
“At the time, no one saw the door open properly, so we didn’t think it was him, and we thought he was scared and trying to jump,” Lee said. “The elementary school students sitting behind me were crying,” he said, adding, “It was panic.”

“I didn’t realize it was such a big accident, and after spending a day back in Daegu, I was heartbroken to see a lot of bad words about the crew on the Internet,” he said. “It was thanks to the crew who organized the situation that no further accidents occurred.” “The crew member who kept signing to me with his eyes acted calmly until the end,” he said. “The people who were subduing the criminal during the landing process could have jumped out, but they did a really safe job.”
