SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco airport officials say a teenage boy opened the emergency door of a plane that had just landed and jumped onto the tarmac.
Airport spokesman Doug Yakel says an airfield construction crew confronted the 17-year-old boy, who has been arrested and is in police custody.
He says Copa Airlines Flight 208 from Panama City landed Tuesday afternoon and was waiting to head to a gate when the teenager, who appeared to be in emotional distress, jumped from the aircraft.
Yakel says the teenager is a U.S. citizen and was traveling alone.
He says no runways or flights were affected and that the unidentified boy wasn’t injured.
Yakel says the plane went to its assigned gate and all passengers got off the flight without incident.
