(ORDO NEWS) — An airline flight from Israel to Turkey was forced to turn around after passengers received disturbing images on their phones.
According to reports, the images showed various aviation accidents, including the Turkish Airlines plane crash that happened back in 2009.
Some of the recipients suffered shock, one woman fainted and another had a panic attack.
Concerned about the safety of the flight, the pilot made the decision to return to Ben Gurion Airport, where the security crew re-examined everyone’s luggage and conducted various security checks.
It was later revealed that the images were sent via Apple AirDrop from the phones of nine passengers aboard the flight.
All of them were removed from the plane and now face prosecution for spreading false information, according to local authorities. It remains unclear why this group of people took such a step.
