Plane terror as man jumps from moving Air Asia flight
A PLANE passenger leapt from a moving aeroplane after he suddenly changed his mind.
The man, who was travelling on an Air Asia flight from Miri to Kuala Lumpur, jumped from his seat and opened the emergency door as the plane was taxying on the runway, witnesses reported.
The move caused panic among the passengers as emergency measures were activated.
Passengers were delayed for more than an hour following the incident where the man was later arrested.
Flight passenger Siva Nathiran told the Asian News Network: “'The raft automatically opened. Other passengers started screaming. The plane was brought to a halt.”
The man, believed to be in his 20s, was taken to hospital but did not suffer any injuries from his fall.
Investigations into the incident are continuing.
