This is the first I heard of this and thought it was worth sharing. [article] Nicole Louise Foran, a flight attendant from Eastern Passage, N.S., received one of Canada’s top awards Thursday for bravery, after she and her co-worker helped save passengers during a dramatic plane hijacking in Jamaica in 2009. In April of that year, a gunman reportedly forced his way through security at the Montego Bay airport and boarded the plane carrying 159 passengers. He then forced the pilot down a ramp and fired a shot. "It just didn't seem like it was really happening," said Foran, a flight attendant on the CanJet Flight. "It was like a bad joke. "It was a reign of terror that came across everybody on the plane at that moment."
