Teen jumps out of plane onto tarmac at SFO

Departing and parked aircraft intersect at San Francisco International Airport

A teenage passenger was taken for a medical evaluation after he opened an emergency door on an airplane when it landed in San Francisco then slid down the wing to the tarmac, an official said Wednesday.

The US citizen was traveling alone and appeared to be in emotional distress during the flight, airport spokesman Doug Yakel said.

It's unclear what charges, if any, the teen might face.

"I heard the plane land and the door open nearly at the same time and then I saw someone.it was as if he was flying out", said passenger Sarah Gibson. The teen was a passenger on a Boeing 737 from Panama City.

"Right as the plane landed, a kid opened the emergency exit, jumped out onto the wing and then slipped off", said Matt Crowder of Atherton, who was on the plane. The plane continued to move to the designated terminal and all the passengers got to the airport without incident. The passenger has been taken into custody by law enforcement.




Police dogs searched the area where the teen exited the plane, and ran on the tarmac. "We are cooperating fully with the relevant authorities to support the ongoing investigation".

Passenger Isaac Rodrigues said they were all told to remain on the plane for over an hour as police dealt with the situation.

No runways or other flights were affected, Yakel said.

In April in the same year, a United Airlines flight attendant also pulled off a similar incident by jumping off an aircraft.
