One of the passengers of the United Express flight 5365 to Salk Late City was detained and later on taken to a hospital after he jumped out of a moving flight at the Los Angeles International Airport.
The plane was apparently pulling away from a gate post 7pm as the individual tried to exit the flight. Firstly, he tried to breach the cockpit but subsequently opened the service door and jumped to the tarmac through the emergency slide.
The flight then had to halt for around three hours as the airport authorities first took the person into custody and then got him checked up for injuries in a hospital.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has now been made in-charge of probing the case as this is the second time that such a disruption has troubled the flight services in the Los Angeles airport in the previous couple of days.
In fact, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) disclosed this year that almost 3000 prospective breakouts have been recorded by unruly passengers this year. This is the highest number of breaches registered in a single year since the data compilation for the same began in 1995.
In most of such cases, passengers tend to be defiant towards adhering with the federal facemask provision inside the flight, India Today reports.
