A woman opened the emergency exit door of a plane after it landed at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport at about 1:15 p.m. Monday, according to reports by KXAS-TV.
The incident happened on a United Airlines flight arriving from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, when the woman was detained by police after hopping out of the plane before it reached the tarmac.
It remains unclear why the woman jumped out of the plane. Houston police told ABC13 that the woman was taken to be assessed at a county mental health facility. The FBI has chosen not to press federal charges, the station reported.
