Teen Jumps Out Of Plane's Emergency Exit 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.

Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said an airfield construction crew took hold of the teen and he is in custody.

He says no runways or flights were affected and that the unidentified boy wasn't injured.

Police dogs searched the area where the teen exited the plane, and ran on the tarmac.

The flight continued to taxi to its gate and all the other passengers were offloaded there.

"It was as if he was like flying out, like it was really fast", Sophia Gibson, a passenger who lives in San Jose, told local NBC affiliate KNTV. He was later transferred to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Yakel said.

A crew member shut the door, and the plane taxied to its gate where everyone safely got off, the Panama-based COPA said in a statement.

In May 2017, an airline passenger was arrested after an incident involved the passenger trying to bite a flight attendant before opening the galley door of an American Airlines flight and jumping on to the tarmac at a North Carolina airport, according to Time Magazine.

'We were on the runway for about an hour, ' Rodrigues said.

The airline added that an investigation was under way and that it was co-operating with the authorities. The incident led to a two hour delay of the aircraft and reportedly cost the airlines about $16,000 in damages.

"People were yelling, 'Tell the flight attendants".
