A United Airlines flight was disrupted last night after an inflatable emergency slide deployed, popping open in the aircraft’s cabin. While the jet’s emergency’s door remained closed, pilots of the Boeing 737 quickly made an emergency landing in Wichita, Kansas.
The flight’s passengers included former University of Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez, who tweeted his view from inside the cabin, along with the message, “Thankful to be safe.”
The plane had been heading from Chicago to Southern California; instead, the incident aboard Flight 1463 forced startled passengers to spend Sunday night in Wichita. No injuries have been reported in the unusual episode.
“Holy smokes!” said ground crew personnel after seeing the slide deployed inside the plane, according to passenger Sara Schroeder, who was one of several people aboard the plane to document the odd ordeal on Twitter.
Passenger Susan Finkbeiner tells local TV KAKE News that the pilot told her “he had to descend right away, because there was a chance that the rest [of the ramp] could even like, push the door open. So it was like, definitely a rush.”
