Evacuation slide deploys in midflight

(CNN) — Passengers on board a United Airlines flight were caught off guard when an evacuation slide deployed midair.

It is still unclear how it happened, but a passenger said he heard a “pop,” turned around and saw the slide. He took these photos.

There were no injuries reported.

The 737 was carrying 96 passengers and five crew members from Chicago to California on Sunday.
