Passenger Opens Plane Door Mid-Flight By Mistake

Watch the terrifying accident caught on video moments after…


When an Asiana Airlines flight was about to touch down on Friday, a passenger opened the emergency exit, the airline informed AFP, adding that numerous passengers were taken to the hospital despite the plane landing safely.


On a domestic trip, the Airbus A321-200 was carrying close to 200 passengers as it steered toward the runway at Daegu International Airport, some 240 kilometers (149 miles) southeast of Seoul.

A passenger near the emergency exit “opened the door manually by touching the lever” when the aircraft was still around 200 meters (650 feet) in the air, the South Korean carrier’s representative told AFP.


According to Asiana, some passengers experienced breathing problems due to the unexpected door opening, and others were brought to a hospital following the landing even though there were no serious injuries or damage.
