MIRI: A man jumped out the emergency door of an AirAsia plane here while it  was taxiing prior to take off around 7.30pm last night.

The 24-year-old’s antics caused several flights at Miri Airport to be delayed  until midnight.

He is believed to be an off-duty crew member of the airline identified only  as Chong.

The man boarded the flight headed for Kuala Lumpur together with his  girlfriend.

It is unclear what transpired once onboard to provoke his actions.

On-duty flight attendants reportedly said they were powerless to stop him  from opening the emergency exit and jumping out once the plane had started to  move on the runway.

It is believed that Chong could face legal action. – Borneo Post
