Teen opens emergency exit, jumps out of plane onto SFO tarmac

Teen detained after jumping from plane at SFO

A teenage passenger apparently impatient for his plane to reach a gate at San Francisco International Airport opened an emergency exit, slid down the plane's wing, fell to the ground, then started running Tuesday, officials say.

The teen, an American citizen, was stopped by construction crew members who were working nearby.

Yakel said the teen was not injured and air traffic was not affected.

A woman from San Jone, Sophia Gibson, told KNTV that the people sitting next to the teen were shocked when he jumped off the plane. 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. Police are questioning passengers who were onboard the flight.

CBS 5 reports that the boy was 17 and Customs and Border Control is investigating the incident. "All other passengers and crew disembarked safely. We are cooperating fully with the relevant authorities to support the ongoing investigation".

Yakel says the plane went to its assigned gate and all passengers got off the flight without incident. "So said passenger opens the over wing emergency exit and jumps out on to runway 28L". She tried to flee and ran towards the terminal when she was detained the by the police, CNN had reported.

The 17-year-old boy opened the door as soon as the flight from Panama City had landed at San Francisco airport.

He says they were yelling to tell the flight attendants that the door was open and someone had jumped off.
