South Korea: Plane door opened mid-flight

Passengers experienced a shock during the flight when, 200 meters above the ground, the door of the plane opened. Nine people were hospitalized. One of the men on board did it. He is being questioned by the police.

On Friday after 12 noon local time (approx. 6 am in Poland) there was a dangerous situation on an Asiana Airlines plane. The plane was flying from Jeju-do to Daegu.

2-3 minutes before landing – when the Airbus A321 was in the air – one of the passengers went to the emergency door and opened it. The machine was then 200 meters above the ground.

An Asiana Airlines spokesman explained that “the passenger was supposed to uncover the lever cover and then pull it.”

The police interrogated the perpetrator

Fortunately, we managed to reach the ground safely and no one was seriously injured during the flight. This was helped by the fact that all passengers had their seatbelts fastened due to the approaching landing.

Nine people, however, reported having trouble breathing. Most of them, as many as eight, are school-aged children. They were taken to a nearby hospital.


Their malaise may be due to the fact that the plane’s skin has been breached, including the opening of the door at high altitude, which may cause a sudden and rapid decompression of the cabin, caused by the pressure difference inside and outside the machine.
