It sounds like a bad horror movie plot but passengers on board a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight from Riyadh to Tabuk experienced a bit of in-flight horror as 80 mice escaped from a passenger’s baggage and ran amuck through the aircraft.
Local press had no explanation on how the man was able to smuggle the mice onto the airplane, or why, for that matter, he was traveling with them in the first place. The mice did, however, manage to eat the copilot and gnaw their way through most of the hydraulics before being wrestled to the ground and… um… um… just kidding folks. Ha! Other than jumping on a few heads, the only damage the mice created was purely psychological.
Now, I’m not normally a squeamish person, but I can’t imagine being trapped in an airplane with so many furry rodents afoot. Ugh.
