Chris Llewellyn, Son of Gate City II all star, David Llewellyn, subdues would be bomber on a Delta Flight to Los Angeles. Chris was en route to a Television appearance on "Last Call With Carson Daly" as guitarist for Asher Roth, an up and coming rapper.
Chris responded to cries for help as the plane was approaching Los Angeles, "The suspect was yelling 'don't come near me, I have a bomb. I have a bomb.' Chris thought the would be bomber was about to open one of the plane's emergency doors.
Chris and others jumped on the man and as Chris would later say, "everyone was holding down a different body part, he was going nuts, I told him to 'chill' cause he wasn't going anywhere." Chris stayed behind to speak with the FBI while Asher Roth was rushed to make call time for the Carson Daly Show.
Roth's management company released the following statement late Wednesday afternoon, "Chris Llewellyn was the real-deal tackler of the person crying 'bomb' on Delta Flight 110 yesterday, and they and Asher want to give him his full hero due. Asher is thankful and proud of Chris' bravery and hopes Delta gives him free flights for life!" In another twist, sort of related to this story, the wife of another one of Gate City's marquis brethren, David Johnston, Beth, just retired from the role of Senior Vice President of Delta Airlines...perhaps she still has connections?
