Air Canada investigates how woman was abandoned on parked plane






Air Canada has launched an investigation into a woman's claims that she was abandoned on a plane after she fell asleep during the flight.


Tiffani Adams claims she woke up several hours after the 90-minute flight from Quebec had landed in Toronto.


She claims she was still strapped in her seat, but the aircraft was dark and she was freezing cold.


Adams called a friend to tell her where she was, but then her phone died less than a minute into the call.


Her friend called Toronto Pearson Airport, but Adams claims she was only found when she used a torch she discovered in the cockpit to open the aircraft door.


She hung out of the door to signal to a baggage trolley operator, who managed to rescue her.


Air Canada has confirmed that the incident took place, which came to light via Ms Adams' friends' Facebook post. The airline said it is investigating but it has declined to comment further.
