In May, an elderly passenger was arrested and detained in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong for endangering the safety of an aircraft, after he tried to open an emergency exit as the plane sat on the ground.

In an apparent attempt to beat the queue to disembark, the passenger, identified by his surname, Song, opened an emergency door near his seat after his flight landed.

Ola Orekunrin, a doctor from Lagos, tweeted that the "exit door fell off" the Nigerian airliner as they touched down on their 6.48 a.m. flight from Lagos.
