HOUSTON (KXAN) — Police in Houston are trying to figure out why a woman opened the emergency exit door of an airplane and jumped off the wing.
The incident happened on Monday at the Bush Intercontinental Airport. She and the rest of the passengers on the United Airlines plane were waiting for the final taxi to the gate.
For unknown reasons the woman jumped out and ran toward the terminal.
“The attendants kept telling everybody you know stay seated, leave their seat-belts on because we weren’t at the gate, that sort of thing. It was kind of um surreal, I guess would be a good word,” said witness Cathy Cole.
The woman was taken into custody by police. The FBI says she is not a risk for national security.
