Flight Diverted: Passengers' Story

A woman is in custody in Boston this morning, awaiting charges for disrupting United Flight 923 from London.

The plane left Heathrow airport yesterday bound for Washington DC with 182 passengers on board. One of them, a 59-year-old woman from Vermont, caused a disturbance and the pilot declared an emergency. The plane was diverted and two fighter jets escorted it to Logan Airport.

Fred Thys reports on what passengers had to say after they landed in Boston.
