Alaskan authorities have arrested a 16-year-old boy who briefly took control over a small plane over Alaska. This caused the device to rise very quickly, then to dive towards the ground.

KYUK-AM reports that the boy, who is not named because of his age, was in the front passenger seat during the short commercial flight from Napakiak to Bethel. Shortly after taking off, he grabbed the controls of the Piper Cherokee Six aircraft.

The authorities say that the woman who was behind the boy could pull him away. The pilot then regained control of the aircraft. The teenager ran away after the aircraft had flown back to Napakiak. He could later be arrested in Bethel.
