BHOPAL, India, May 15 (UPI) -- Air India said a plane made an emergency landing when the pilot accidentally became locked outside of the cockpit during a bathroom trip.

The plane was traveling Tuesday from Delhi to Bangalore and the co-pilot was able to successfully land the plane in Bhopal, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

"The commander of the flight had left the cockpit for a short while to visit the toilet and on returning to the cockpit found the door locked. The door had gotten jammed and all efforts to open the door even from inside by the co-pilot failed," Air India said in a statement.
