Viral Video: Passenger Opens Emergency Exit Mid-Air!

A shocking video went viral after a passenger opened an emergency exit on an Asiana Airlines flight as it was preparing to land.

The video has the wind ripping into the flight and onto the faces of the passengers near the exit. The Airbus A321-200 was carrying nearly 200 passengers and the plane landed safely but several people were hospitalized due to breathing issues.

A passenger sitting near the emergency exit opened the door manually by touching the lever when the plane was still about 200 meters above the ground.

The 33-year-old passenger has been taken into police custody for questioning, to find out why they opened the door.
