A passenger aboard a Southwest Airlines flight from Colorado Springs to Phoenix must have been really anxious to reach his destination as he jumped out of the plane after landing -- before it even made it to the gate.
- The strange incident occurred Saturday at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport, says Southwest Airlines spokesman Dan Landson. "Initial reports indicate that while the flight was taxiing to the gate, a customer onboard exited the aircraft via a rear galley door," Landson says. "The flight's captain stopped the aircraft and notified Air Traffic Control."
- After landing on the tarmac, the unidentified 30-year-old made his way to an airport fire station, where he locked himself inside a dormitory room, says Phoenix Fire Department Captain Todd Keller. "After a few minutes, firefighters were able to get the adult male to unlock the door where he was then evaluated, treated and transported to a local hospital for a lower extremity injury," Keller says. So far, no charges have been filed against the man, the Phoenix P.D. confirms.
