On a chartered plane on their way back from Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Ashton Kutcher, Wilmer Valderrama and Danny Masterson of That ’70s show had an in-flight scare and had to make an emergency landing in El Paso, Texas.
According to reports, Valderrama and Masterson were asleep in the plane’s cabin, along with Tom Hanks’ son Colin, when it began to lose pressure rapidly. Potato chip bags began exploding and oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling.
Kutcher, the only one awake at the time, tried to wake his friends up to tell them to put their oxygen masks on but couldn’t wake Masterson, so he started doing CPR.
After Masterson came out of it, Colin Hanks started losing consciousness. “All the masks came down, but a few didn’t work,” said a publicist. “Danny and Colin Hanks passed out, but there is no blood, no foul, and they’re not dead — just a little shaken.”
After making an emergency stop in El Paso to check out the plane and to make sure nobody was seriously injured, the plane continued on to Los Angeles.
“It was a moment of a lot of nervousness,” said Valderrama. “But at the end our instincts were telling us to be calm and deal with what we had in front of us. Thank God there was a happy ending.”
