Departing and parked aircraft intersect at San Francisco International Airport
A distraught 17-year-old boy opened the emergency exit of a plane after it landed in San Francisco, ran down its wing and booked it across the tarmac.
A teen passenger was detained Tuesday after opening the emergency exit of a Copa Airlines plane and jumping onto the tarmac, the Panama-based airline confirmed. An airport spokesperson says the passenger, who was a USA citizen, was detained by a construction crew working on the airfield and had been taken into custody. The teen, who appeared to be in emotional distress during the flight, was not injured, Yakel said.
Sophia Gibson tells San Francisco television station KGO-TV (http://abc7ne.ws/2vgIEGE ) people sitting next the 17-year-old were surprised when he jumped out of the plane and onto a wing shortly after the plane landed at the San Francisco Airport. Other passengers said he seemed anxious and fidgety during the flight and that he acted very quickly, making it hard for anyone to stop him. And then he just starts running the other way. The incident occurred a few minutes after landing, while the aircraft was taxiing to the gate. Though, a passenger named Isaac Rodrigues said that since there was no door to close, the flight attendant used her body to block the gap so that the plane could continue to the gate, reported AP. The passenger has been taken into custody by law enforcement.
"We are cooperating fully with the relevant authorities to support the ongoing investigation", the company said. The American Airlines flight 5242 was preparing for takeoff from the terminal at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
No runways or other flights were affected, Yakel said. Copa Airlines lands at SFO and a passenger could not wait until they got to the gate.
