A terrifying video: Passenger opens emergency exit door during flight

A plane passenger opened an airplane door during a flight to South Korea on Friday, 26 May. A terrifying video captured passengers on board the plane being battered by the intense wind.

Witnesses say the passenger was sitting next to the emergency door when he suddenly removed a plastic cover and pulled a lever. That’s when the door slid open.

The plane was 600 feet off the ground and was minutes away from landing in South Korea when it happened. It was causing air to blast inside the cabin and slightly injure 12 people, officials said. The plane landed safely.

Some people aboard the Asiana Airlines Airbus A321 aircraft tried to stop the person, who was able to partially open the door, the Transport Ministry said.

The person was detained by airport police on suspicion of violating the aviation security law, a ministry statement said. The person’s identity and motive weren’t immediately released.

A video apparently taken by a person on board that was posted on social media shows some passengers’ hair being whipped by the air blowing into the cabin through the open door.

The passengers included teenage athletes on their way to a track and field competition. Some screamed and cried in panic, Yonhap news agency reported, citing their unidentified coach.

Yonhap quoted other passengers as saying they suffered severe ear pain after the door opened. It said some cabin crew shouted for help from passengers to prevent the door from being opened.

Twelve people were taken to hospitals for treatment, according to the Transportation Ministry. Emergency officials in Daegu said the injured people suffered breathing problems and other minor symptoms.
