Pandemonium ensued as crew members tried to douse the suspect with water.
Passenger Syed Jafry said that’s when a burly man jumped over several seats and tackled the blood-thirsty extremist.
“He took him under his arm and got hold of his neck and then other people helped him,” Jafry, who was sitting three rows behind the suspect, told Fox News. “He handled it very well.”
The heroic passenger was taken to the University of Michigan Medical Center and was still hospitalized Friday night. The extent of his injuries was not revealed. — NY Daily News
