United Flight 1074 heading for Denver made an unexpected return to Dulles International Airport after a passenger rushed the cockpit Monday.

According to ABC News, one of the pilots told air traffic controllers, "He ran forward towards the cockpit and he is being restrained by passengers."

As two men held him down, he can be heard saying "I'm sorry" on a video shot by another passenger. An airport spokesperson says law enforcement met the aircraft and the man was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
