In what’s pretty much the worst start to a holiday ever a passenger on a Jet2 flight had his ear bitten off enroute to Ibiza from Newcastle.
The victim, aged between 18 and 25, was set upon by someone we’re presuming was a cannibalistic maniac shortly before the plane landed on Sunday evening.
A source speaking to the Mirror.co.uk said:
“He was with a group of friends who were sitting in front of us but he was sitting towards the back of the flight.
“He kept coming to chat to his mates and then returning to his seat as the flight went on.
“When the plane was taxiing to Ibiza Airport the guy came running down the plane towards his friends.
“He took his T-Shirt off and we could see he was covered in blood and that half his ear was just hanging off.
“The steward took him to the front of the plane. We never saw the person that did it but the guy was shouting: 'Someone just bit my ear off. Who does that?'”
They (needlessly) added: “It was a horrible start to the holiday.”
We’ll just let that sink in for a second.
The victim was taken to a Spanish hospital in an attempt to save his ear once the plane had touched down. The Managing Director of Jet2.com said the airline was aware of the incident, stating: "We are working closely with Northumbria Police and the parties involved to fully investigate the reported incident so that we can take the appropriate action."
Absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, the worst start to a holiday ever.
