Flight Attendant Makes Dramatic Exit

Apr 5, 2016 1:35 PM by News Staff

A United Airlines flight attendant intentionally opened a plane door and inflated the emergency slide after the aircraft landed Monday at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport.

According to an official with United Airlines, the incident happened around noon after Flight 1246 landed after traveling from Sacramento. The flight attendant deployed the evacuation slide when the aircraft reached Gate C43 and came to a full stop.

Video shot from the terminal shows a female flight attendant first throw her bag to the ground nearly 15 feet below, then slide down.

Passengers inside Bush were in utter disbelief.

"That's insane. Why?" Traveler Sharon Lovedahl said. "Why would she do that?"

Neither United nor investigators have revealed what led to the flight attendant's quick exit.
