Passenger opened the emergency exit door during approach on Asiana Airlines A321

Passenger opened the emergency exit door during approach on Asiana Airlines A321

The A321 of Asian Airlines made a successful landing after the emergency exit door opened in midair. Even though the awful occurrence was caught on camera and posted to Twitter, the airline has not yet provided any information for the report.

Given that the majority of emergency and main doors on airplanes are locked, it is shocking to see how windows are being unlocked while the aircraft is in the air. As the plane prepared to land at Daegu International Airport at 12:45 p.m. on Friday at 11:49 a.m., the door of flight OZ8124 from Jeju International Airport abruptly opened, hitting the tarmac with the door open, according to sources.

Video taken from the Airbus A321 reveals passengers’ hair being ruffled by the gust of wind. None of the 194 passengers were hurt, but a few had breathing problems and had to be brought to the hospital after landing. Nobody passed out, though.

After a passenger opened the emergency exit door during approach, the Asiana Airlines A321 touched down without incident at Daegu Airport in South Korea. Nine people were sent to the hospital due to breathing problems.

Many of the passengers were track and field athletes from Jeju Island’s primary and middle schools who were travelling to Ulsan to compete in a sporting event.

According to a representative of Asiana Airlines, authorities are interviewing a passenger who was sitting close to the emergency exit of the aircraft and who admitted to touching the evacuation lever. Minutes before the plane was supposed to arrive at Daegu International Airport in South Korea, a 30-year-old man was arrested on Friday for unlocking the emergency door of an airplane while it was in the air..
