An unnamed woman opened the emergency exit of a United Airlines flight and jumped out of the plane after it safely landed at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in New Orleans on Monday 28 November 2016. The incident happened as the plane taxied slowly to the unboarding terminal.
According to the airline’s spokesperson Maddie King, the woman was taken into custody by authorities although she wasn’t charged to court.
Passenger Hampton Friedman said he was sitting across the aisle when the woman took off. He started recording a video shortly after the woman went overboard.
“I realized when the door popped open and a woman stepped out of it.”
