SEATTLE -- Talk about sleeping around with a lot of baggage.
When Alaska Airlines Flight 448 from Seattle to Los Angeles had to make an emergency landing back at Sea-Tac, it wasn't (directly) about safety or security. It was about sleep.
A ramp worker says he fell asleep after stowing the bags. Apparently the unenergetic employee had snuggled-up for a quick power nap at the end of his shift, and then the takeoff woke him up! After a safe landing, he was checked out at the hospital, passed a drug test and let go. But that's a rude awakening.
