        考研英語時文賞讀(98):坐飛機睡過頭還會被鎖在飛機上?

          Woman falls asleep on flight, wakes up ‘alone’ and ‘locked up’ in empty plane

          一名女子坐飛機睡過頭,醒來時發現“獨自一人”被“鎖在”飛機上

          Tiffani Adams was on her way home to Toronto after visiting a friend in Quebec when “one of the best weekends I’ve ever had” turned into a nightmare.

          在拜訪了魁北克的一位朋友后,蒂芬尼·亞當斯乘坐飛機返回她位于多倫多的家,“我度過的最美好的一個周末”就這樣變成了一場噩夢。

          She woke up in a cold, dark Air Canada jet a few hours after it landed at Toronto International Airport to discover she was left sleeping on the plane.

          在飛機降落至多倫多國際機場幾個小時后,她醒了過來,發現自己身處一架冰冷黑暗的飛機上。

          Adams described the harrowing experience in which she was unable to recharge her phone while stuck inside the parked aircraft, which sent her into a panic attack.

          亞當斯描述了她的悲慘經歷,當時她被關在飛機里,沒法給手機充電,這讓她十分害怕。

          Left to grope around the plane for some way to alert someone she was still on board, Adams eventually found a flashlight in the cockpit, and opened one of the plane’s doors. 亞當斯在飛機上四處摸索,試圖讓人發現飛機上還有人,最后她終于在駕駛艙找到了一個手電筒,隨后她打開了飛機門。

          Hanging 40 or 50 feet above the pavement, she flashed the light at distant ground crews until someone driving a luggage truck saw her and came to the rescue.

          她站在距離地面四五十英尺高的飛機上,用手電筒向遠處的地勤人員示意,知道一位開行李車的工作人員看到了她,才趕來把她救了出來。

          Air Canada officials gave her a ride home and have been in contact with her since, but Adams is still recovering from the ordeal.

          加拿大航空公司的工作人員將她送回了家,并一直與她保持著聯系,但亞當斯至今都沒能從這次事故中恢復過來。

          “I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” she wrote in her post.

          她在帖子中寫道:“從那以后我就沒睡好過,總是在夢到那晚的情景后驚醒,害怕自己又被孤零零地關在一個漆黑的地方。”
