NYPost.com - A passenger aboard a South Korean flight opened an emergency door moments before the plane landed — sparking caught-on-video chaos and panic among the 194 passengers in the wind-swept cabin.
The Asiana Airlines Airbus A321 was about to land in Daegu after a flight from the southern island of Jeju on Friday when the passenger pulled the emergency exit handle at an altitude of about 700 feet, officials said.
Some of the other passengers tried to prevent the person from reaching the door but it partially opened, sending air whipping throughout the cabin as terrified fliers gripped their armrests.
I have always wondered what it would be like if someone pulled one of those way too easily accessible levers on the emergency exit door mid-flight. Well now I know and I never want to see it again. Good lord.
That poor couple sitting in the exit row with 170 mph wind whipping in their face like they are on the first hill of a roller coaster have to be rethinking that audible "yes" they gave the flight attendant about being willing to sit in an exit row before takeoff. You asked if I would be willing to help people in case of an emergency not hang on for dear life as some psycho tries to make the worlds weirdest suicide attempt.
Imagine being so bad ass that you unbuckled your seatbelt and grabbed on to this dude to keep him in the plane. That's hero shit right there. Couldn't be me, nope. I'm not risking my life for this crazy asshole. That boy would have gotten a free sky diving lesson sans parachute.
I always thought if you opened those doors everyone would just get sucked out but I guess that's not what happens in real life only in movies. Everyone just looks like they are in one of those tanks with the dollar bills swirling around them trying to win 20 dollars.
I was tempted to say the punishment here should be electric chair but I think this guy might be in to that sort of thing. Instead I think he should be strapped to a seat on a Spirit Airlines flight from Cleveland to Las Vegas and forced to ride it back and forth for 10 straight years. Just day after day of drunken chicks, fighting couples, screaming babies, and flight delays.
Oh you're thirsty? Well you better have four bucks for a water bottle. You're ass hurts from that Greyhound Bus ass seat? Too bad. Should have thought of that before you tried to go all Goldeneye on a flight with a bunch of innocent people.
For all we know this guy might have been doing this as a stunt for his Youtube page, which would make the entire thing 100x worse. Reminds me of the time that dip shit crashed his plane on purpose to get views for his Youtube channel. At least that guy didn't have a plane full of people when he did it. Launch both these assholes into the sun.
