(29 January 2001, Guyana) There's a time and a place for everything. But attacking your ex-lover with a knife while he is piloting a plane in mid-air is generally regarded as both the wrong time and the wrong place. Particularly by the other occupants of the aircraft.
Sharon, 21, was "suffering from a broken heart" when she stabbed her ex-lover and current pilot in the neck and shoulder. Fortunately for all concerned, a female passenger flying with her nine-year-old daughter wrested the knife from her hand, and the wounded pilot managed to land the four-seat Cessna plane safely.
Could she possibly have been unaware of the danger of attacking the pilot while in mid-air? Whether ignorant or suicidal, Sharon, who makes her living as "a star reporter," is advised to stick to writing headlines instead of making them.
