(CNN) - The photo above showing a passenger restrained in his seat on an airplane is going viral.

The incident happened Thursday on an Iceland Air flight bound for New York.

The airline could not confirm the validity of this photo but says there was an incident where a man was restrained by the crew and other passengers onboard.

According to an Iceland Air spokesman, equipment like duct tape and plastic zip ties are on every flight in case of an incident such as this.

Port Authority Police in New York say the man was apparently drunk and wasn't charged with a crime.
