In the United States, the guy jumped out of a plane during landing

Teen detained after jumping from plane at SFO

San Francisco: A 17-year-old passenger swung open an emergency exit on Tuesday and jumped from an aeroplane onto the runway at San Francisco International Airport.

A teenager was taken for a medical evaluation after he opened an emergency door on an plane in San Francisco.

The teen, a US citizen, was accosted by an airfield construction crew and is now in police custody.

The reasons that prompted the young American to open the emergency exit and rush and on the road were not yet known, according to this spokesman, Charles Sailing, who said that the incident was without outcome on the traffic and that no one had been injured.

The incident happened at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to SFO Spokesperson Doug Yakel.

Passengers said the teenager seemed fidgety and anxious throughout the flight and that he had acted very quickly, making it hard to stop him, according to the Associated Press news agency.


17-year-old boy jumped out of a plane during landing at the airport of San Francisco. The plane went to the assigned gate and all the passengers were de-boarded safely.

Witnesses said the teen seemed fidgety and anxious throughout the seven-hour flight from Panama City, Panama, and that by the time passengers realized the door had been opened, he was already on the ground, running.

In 2014, a passenger on a China Eastern Airlines plane said he wanted to "get off the plane quicker" and deployed the emergency slide after the plane landed at Sanya Phoenix International Airport.

Copa Airlines said that an investigation is under way and that the airline is cooperating with authorities.

No runways or other flights were affected, Yakel said.

Passenger Isaac Rodrigues said they were all told to remain on the plane for over an hour as police dealt with the situation.
