Asiana’s Plane Lands Safely After Opening Door Mid-Flight
STORY: Video footage filmed by a person on the flight and obtained by Yonhap News Television showed wind rushing through the open door. All passengers were seated with seatbelts fastened as the plane was about to land, the spokesperson added.
The plane was two or three minutes from landing when a male passenger seated next to an emergency door opened a lid and pulled a lever, causing the door to open about 656 feet at the above ground, the spokesperson said.
No one was injured in the incident, but nine people were transferred to a nearby hospital after suffering from respiratory problems, a Daegu fire department official said.
Authorities have arrested a passenger, the country’s transport ministry said on Friday.
