Julian Tologanak, a 20 year old man from Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, jumped from a charter plane that was flying from Yellowknife to Cambridge Bay, Nunavut on April 16, according to the Globe and Mail.
Apparently the unidentified plane passenger had become “unruly”, according to the pilot, and was causing unspecified problems while on board. The plane’s pilots asked police to meet them when they landed.
Before arriving in the community, the man managed to pry open the emergency door of the Beechcraft King Air 200 and jump out while the plane was still flying at 23,000 feet.
According to the RCMP, the flight staff made every attempt possible to prevent the man from exiting the plane. An investigation is now under way by the Transportation and Safety Board.
Tologanak’s body has yet to be recovered.
