We don’t exactly want this to happen to us—like ever—but we have to admit it’s pretty cool that these passengers got to use the emergency slides in a somewhat controlled setting. Thanks to one passenger, we even get a first person point-of-view video of all the action. The flight attendants did a great job getting everyone out quickly and away from the plane, but it’s unfortunate they had to continually remind passengers to leave their stuff behind—people, no need to take your carry-on down the slide!
There were a couple minor injuries, but that was pretty much it. Some went to the hospital just to get checked out—we’d probably have chest pain ourselves after something like this. Other than that, it was business as usual and all the passengers were rebooked on some other flights. We’re glad everyone was pretty much okay, and that someone decided to tape it for our viewing pleasure.
