Overheating Samsung Tablet Blamed For Delta Flight Diversion


A Delta Air Lines flight was diverted over the weekend when a Samsung device overheated after being jammed between seats. But the device wasn’t the recently recalled Samsung Note 7 smartphone, it was an unspecified tablet from the device maker.

ABC News reports that the incident occurred late Saturday night on a flight from Detroit to Amsterdam, forcing the plan to divert to Manchester, England for several hours.

According to a Delta official, the tablet fell inside a seat and became jammed when the seat was either reclined or returned to the upright position.
