Spanish police are investigating an incident where 12 people fled a Turkish-bound aircraft that had made an emergency landing on Mallorca. The authorities are investigating whether the incident was faked.
Spanish authorities believe they may have been victims of a clever scheme by would-be migrants to get into Spain. After 23 people tried to flee an Air Arabia plane en route to Turkey from Morocco, the country’s police launched an investigation to determine if there was a violation of a migration law. The flight made an emergency landing in Mallorca, Spain on Friday.
One of the passengers aboard claimed to have suffered from a diabetic-coma, and requested medical attention. The plane was forced into landing. It was discovered that the man was alive and well after he was taken to hospital.
Others passengers may have taken advantage of this chance to get off the plane. A video circulating on social media, which has since been confirmed as authentic by the police, shows around a dozen people rushing through the plane’s cabin and running across the tarmac.
