Air Asia Passenger Jumps From Moving Airplane
According to news.com.au, the drastic move caused panic among other fliers, and emergency procedures were activated.
"The raft automatically opened when the door was opened. The passengers inside the aircraft started screaming. The flight attendants immediately alerted the pilots and the plane was stopped in its track," said passenger and Environment Department chief Siva Nathiran.
The plane was delayed for over an hour and the man, believed to be in his late 20s, was later arrested. While he was taken to the hospital, he did not suffer any injuries.
