Paris Hilton wants to sue the pranksters who tricked her into believing that she was about to die on a flight over Dubai. An Egyptian TV show staffed a plane with actors and then the pilot pretended to lose control of the plane, shut down the engine and attempt to crash-land. The prank was pretty convincing—a couple men even parachute out the back of the plane at one point!—and Hilton cries and screams for her life.

The video was put together by the TV show Ramez in Control. Now Hilton is planning to sue, claiming that she was in mortal fear for her life, which the video pretty well shows, according to TMZ. Hilton says she's now afraid to fly anywhere—which is an important part of her career. Lawyers tell her she has a solid case for emotional distress.
