Yesterday a passenger on United’s flight UA1892 from New Orleans to Houston pulled the emergency exit door over the wing of the Boeing 737 on arrival and jumped out.
She went out onto the plane’s wing — really not meant for walking on — and jumped to the ground.
The woman ran towards the terminal and was apprehended.
Houston Police Department officials said the woman was transported to a neuro-psychiatric center for medical evaluation. Prosecutors decided to not accept charges against the woman or release her identity.
Meanwhile passengers waited while police boarded and searched the plane.
Unlike when a United 737 flight attendant in Houston made their own exit earlier this year, the slide was not deployed.
