WOODBURY - News 12 Long Island has obtained new video of the pilot who had a mid-air meltdown onboard a JetBlue flight destined for Las Vegas yesterday.

Passengers can be seen rushing to grab JetBlue Flight 191 pilot Clayton Osbon as he ran through the plane yelling "say your prayers."

Passengers eventually tied up Osbon as he screamed about bomb threats, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Jonathan Johnson, of Amityville, was aboard the plane with his wife and said he was freaking out because he thought "we were all going to go down."

The pilot was taken off the plane in restraints.

News 12 Long Island has learned that one of the people who helped subdue Osbon is a man who runs a Jericho investigation company. He has been identified as retired NYPD Sgt. Paul Babakitis.

Osbon will be treated at a medical facility under FBI supervision.
