Panic as woman jumped out of a taxiing airplane after the flight landed at Bush Intercontinental Airport half an hour early on Monday, police say.
United Airlines flight 1892 had just arrived around 1.15pm in Houston, Texas, from New Orleans when a woman is said to have gotten out of her seat, walked to the exit and pulled the hatch on the door open.
She then walked out on to the wing of the plane and jumped to the ground 15 feet below. After a moment she got up and began running toward the terminal but was caught and detained by police.
The FBI also stepped in to question her, though it was later said she was no longer in FBI custody, according to KHOU.
Passengers on the plane captured the aftermath and said the woman didn’t say anything before leaping to the ground.
