A passenger on board a plane at Hangzhou Airport in eastern China opened the emergency door, purportedly to ‘get some fresh air’. The passenger, who was travelling on Xiamen Airlines flight MF8453 to Changsha, was seen opening one of the emergency exits and sticking his head outside as the plane waited to take off.
