A plane carrying 134 people made an emergency landing in Graz in Austria, when one of its passengers refused to leave the toilet.

According to Belgian aviation site aviation24.be, local police said the passenger locked himself in the toilet shortly after takeoff from Cyprus to Zurich in Switzerland.

The captain of the Edelweiss Air flight WK371 from Larnaca to Zurich on Saturday finally decided to land in Graz at around 1:15 PM in order to deal with the situation.

Once the plane landed, the man finally left the toilet but without giving any explanation for his behaviour. Nothing suspicious was found in his luggage.

The man had to continue the final stretch by train, once the plane could take off again following the unusual flight delay.
