Woman Tries to Stop Plane: Halifax Airport Fence-Jumper Arrested

By    |   Monday, 11 Aug 2014 03:38 PM

A woman scaled an airport fence and tried to stop a plane from leaving the Halifax, Nova Scotia, airport Sunday because she thought her partner was on board and cheating on her.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was arrested and taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation.

"Her intent was to stop the aircraft from taking off," a Royal Canadian Mounted police spokesman told Q13 Fox. "She jumped the security fence, but she was nowhere near the aircrafts. The airport staff and the Mounted Police responded right away and apprehended her."

A spokesperson for the Halifax Stanfield International Airport said the woman, age 37, climbed a 10-foot fence.

“She was immediately spotted by the aircraft control tower. One of our folks was on the area and apprehended her,” Peter Spurway told Q13. “She was in the airfield for 10 minutes. We had a small aircraft in the area and the traffic control tower rerouted the aircraft.”

The RCMP spokesperson told UPI that they contacted the woman’s "partner," who said he was not on the airplane.

Spurway said this was the first time he knows of anyone slipping past security to get onto the airfield. Airport security will be reviewed.

"We don’t believe that there are (any gaps)," Spurway told the Chronicle Herald. “But the details of how she got over that fence will be reviewed just to see if there’s anything else we would need to do in that area to ensure the airfield is as secure as we can make it.”

An unnamed Halifax airport employee told the Herald that the woman first came to the counter and asked to stop the plane because she thought her partner was traveling to see another woman. After the airport failed to stop the plane, she drove to the hangar area.

“She ended up going onto the bigger runway and she was essentially wandering around there,” the employee told the Herald. “She was literally going to try to stop the plane.”
