AFP reports that a Chinese passenger on board a Hong Kong Airlines flight from Bali to Hong Kong on Friday, September 28, 2012, was restrained when, halfway through the flight tried to open the airplane’s door.
The 52-year-old man, identified only as Peng, reportedly thought he was opening a bathroom door when he started pulling on the emergency door handle.
Fortunately, the door failed to open as crew members rushed and dragged Peng away from the door, restraining him for the duration of the flight.
Interviewed by the police in Hong Kong, Peng said that he was on his first plane journey and has assumed the door led to a bathroom.
The man was issued a warning letter, but was not arrested.
