Crazy Video Watch the Moment Passengers Realize Plane Is Flying With Door Open
Passengers on a flight to South Korea were left feeling sick after a terrifying discovery forced the plane to turn around.
As the plane soared to 10,000 feet, someone realized that one of the doors had not been sealed all the way shut.
Footage of the heart-pounding moment is captured in the cell phone video above, where noise resembling that of an air vent can be heard.
That sound is what alerted the aircrew to turn around to Cebu, Philippines, according to local outlet Yonhap News Agency.
About 163 people were aboard the flight, operated by Korean Air’s low-cost subsidiary Jin Air.
No injuries were reported, but some passengers later said they had been sick with worry.
“The gap in the door was big enough to put a finger in it,” one passenger reportedly told Yonhap News.
“I thought I would die because I was numb with a headache.”
The passengers were put up in a hotel and flew back to Busan, South Korea 15 hours later.
South Korean transport officials have said they will inspect six local budget airlines, including Jin Air, in light of the incident, according to CNN.
