A passenger on an Asiana Airlines flight in South Korea opened an emergency exit door shortly before the aircraft landed, causing air to blast inside the cabin and injuring 12 people. The 33-year-old man has been formally arrested and faces up to 10 years in prison for violating aviation security laws. He stated that he felt suffocated and wanted to get off the plane quickly. Normally, emergency exit doors cannot be opened mid-flight, but the man succeeded in opening the door likely because the plane was flying at a low altitude while preparing to land. Asiana Airlines has suspended the sale of emergency exit seats on its planes as a safety precaution.
