Basketball Coach Stuck On PlaneJune 19, 2014 9:52am
Chantal Vallee, the coach of the University of Windsor women’s basketball team, fell asleep on her flight from Toronto to Sao Paolo, Brazil, only to awaken hours later back in Toronto.
After four hours in the air, Vallee’s flight was turned back to Pearson International Airport after it was discovered a passenger hadn’t been properly screened.
Vallee tweeted from the plane that police came on board and took a man back into the airport. Peel Regional Police continue to investigate.
Her flight left once again at 9:30am, delayed by about 10 hours. She’s heading to Brazil to help with the country’s national team competing at the world championships in the fall.
