According to a story in the New York Post, the pilot of a plane headed to New York from North Carolina caused an in-flight scare after locking himself inside the plane's bathroom before landing.

According to the Post story, the pilot asked a passenger to alert the cockpit of his dilemma, but the co-pilot was suspicious because the passenger had an accent. The pilot was ultimately able to free himself from the bathroom and resume his duties, according to the Post report.
