One passenger on a plane Asiana Airlines aircraft A321 decided it would be a good idea to open one emergency exit in flight IN Koreaaccording to Related press. This, as you can imagine, caused air to blow through the interior of the cabin and sent 12 people to the hospital with breathing problems and other minor symptoms. Fortunately, plane still landed safely a short time later.

The people on the train are said to have tried to stop this person open door, but to no avail. When the flight landed, the man in his 30s was immediately detained by the airport police on suspicion of violating aviation security laws. Currently, there is no word on their identities or motives, according to the AP.

The plane was believed to have 194 people on board as it headed for the southeastern city of Daegu from the southern island of Jeju. It usually takes about an hour of flight time and the problem occurs when landing at Daegu airport. Fortunately for those involved, the incident occurred when the plane was only 700 feet in the air. The whole challenge can be much more damaging and deadly if it’s on a higher level.

Video taken by a person on the plane shows some passengers’ hair being blown through by the wind open the cabin door. You can also hear some pretty painful screams and panic cries. One person who spoke to a local news source said they had “severe earaches” after the door opened.

“It was chaotic with people standing near the door seemingly fainting one by one and flight attendants calling the doctor on the plane via broadcast,” One passenger reported it to a local source. “I think the plane is about to explode. I thought I would die like this.”

This should come as no surprise, but there are laws that forbid passengers from opening emergency doors and operating other devices on board while they are in flight. South Korea’s Ministry of Transport said the penalty could be up to 10 years in prison.
