An incident involving an emotional service dog on a Delta flight sent a local man to the hospital with facial injuries from dog bites. He's identified as Marlin Termaine Jackson of Daphne. He reportedly was sitting by the window... and the dog was in the middle seat, sitting on his owner's lap.
They're still trying to sort out what happened.
Here's what Delta told Fox 5 News about the incident-
“Prior to pushback of flight 1430, ATL-SAN, a passenger sustained a bite from another passenger’s emotional support dog. The customer who was bitten was removed from the flight to receive medical attention. Local law enforcement cleared the dog, and the dog and its owner were re-accommodated on a later flight; the dog will fly in a kennel.”
