2 PASSANGERS AND A DOG SLIDE OUT OF A MOVING PLANE IN A NEW YORK AIRPORT




 

Two passengers on a Delta flight bound for Atlanta opened a cabin door and activated the slide to exit the plane while it was taxiing to a runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport on Monday morning, an airline spokesman said.

Reports indicate that a large Dalmatian service dog also deplaned with them.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokeswoman Lenis Valens said their service dog – by the name Rain – accompanying the two was taken to a Brooklyn animal shelter.

Delta Flight 462 was delayed for hours after a male passenger forced open a cabin door while the plane was taxiing. He and his companions slid their way out of the plane.

Brian Plummer was sitting toward the back of a Delta Air Lines flight readying to depart La Guardia Airport on Monday when, he said, he noticed a man and a woman with a large service dog nearby.

The Atlanta-bound plane was not completely full, Mr. Plummer said, and the couple changed seats several times.




The man and woman never did settle in, and as Flight 462 began to taxi out to a runway, the man stood up, ignoring a flight attendant’s order to sit, saying that he had post-traumatic stress disorder, Mr. Plummer said.

A short time later, Mr. Plummer said, he felt the plane shudder to a stop. It was not immediately clear to him why, but the flight crew eventually told the passengers what had happened.

The man had forced open a cabin door, activating an emergency slide, and then he, his female companion and their dog slid their way out of the plane, officials said. They were taken into custody a short time later, officials said.

Antonio Murdock, 31, and Brianna Greco, 23, of Florida, each face charges of third-degree criminal trespass, Valens said. Murdock was additionally charged with second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree reckless endangerment, she said.
