MIAMI – A scary situation unfolded on a plane that was preparing to leave Honduras Tuesday, bound for Miami.

American Airlines confirmed someone got into the cockpit and damaged the plane.

The airline issued a statement that read, in part:

“During boarding of American Airlines flight 488 with service from San Pedro Sula, Honduras to Miami, a customer entered the open flight deck and caused damage to the aircraft. Crew members intervened and the individual was ultimately apprehended by local law enforcement.”

That flight eventually took off and landed around 2 a.m. Wednesday with around 121 passengers onboard.

No other details were immediately released.
