Air traveler locked inside United Airlines plane after flight

(WJLA) - All Tom Wagner wanted to do on his flight on Friday from Louisiana to Texas was catch some shuteye. Little did he know that he'd get locked on the plane.

That's exactly what happened to him, though, according to ABC News.

Wagner was flying to Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport on United Airlines from Louisiana when he dozed off. When he woke up, the plane was pitch black, and when he tried to leave, he found the plane's doors locked.

"I called my girlfriend, and she thought I was crazy," he told ABC affiliate KTRK.

United officials came and rescued him from the locked plane about a half-hour later. He eventually made it to his final destination - California.
