(CNN) — A man entered the cockpit of an American Airlines plane in Honduras and caused damage while the aircraft was at the gate, the airline said in a statement.
After doing damage, the passenger attempted to jump out of a window, American Airlines spokesperson Sarah Jantz told CNN.
The incident occurred as the flight was boarding for Miami, the airline statement said.
“Crew members intervened and the individual was ultimately apprehended by local law enforcement,” the statement said.
A replacement aircraft was making its way to Honduras and the flight was rescheduled for a later time, the airline said.
“We applaud our outstanding crew members for their professionalism in handling a difficult situation,” it added.
