Very True.. that is a Plug door and with nearly 10 PSI the Hulk would have a very hard time opening it... Not going to happen... But that person had to be deboarded!
Sounds like he had a psychotic break and became suicidal. What led to his problem only he could say right now. Thank goodness that nobody was seriously hurt including him. At 33, there could be many different forms of pressure that he was under. Hope he gets the help he needs and can eventually be returned to his family as it sounds that they have other serious problems of their own. Main thing, everyone onboard is safe.
I remember a long time ago on a Dash 8. I was sitting on the Front Row on the Isle when an Elder Lady was headed to the Lav (Lav is Up Front and to the Right on that plane. She Turned Left and Grabbed the Pax Door Handle... I jumped up and prevented from trying just a the same time the FA in the rear of the plane noticed the same thing... I pointed her in the correct direction... I doubt that she could have opened the door, but I was not going to take a chance on it either!
i would have had to go to the Lav before her after an incident like that. good job.
Lifetime airline travel ban and check him/her into the local loonie bin, IMHO
