Passenger opens emergency exit, walks on wing of plane

US: A 57-year-old United Airlines passenger has been taken into custody after he opened the emergency exit of the aircraft and walked out onto the wing of the plane while it was taxiing at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, according to media reports.

The man from California was taken into custody on Thursday, CNN reported. “A male subject was onboard a plane that was approaching the gate when he pulled the emergency exit and walked out onto the wing of the plane,” according to a statement from the Chicago Police Department (CPD). “The subject then slid down the wing and onto the airfield,” Chicago Police added.

Randy Frank Davila has been charged with reckless conduct, according to Chicago police. The incident occurred on United Airlines flight 2478 coming from San Diego. United Airlines said the ground crew stopped the individual outside the aircraft. When the plane arrived at the gate, all passengers deplaned safely, according to a statement from the airline.
