A teenager has been arrested after he jumped out of a plane just seconds after it landed on the tarmac at San Francisco International airport. The teen was a male USA citizen, airport spokesman Doug Yakel told CBS in San Francisco.

Yakel says the teenager is a US citizen and was traveling alone on the flight from Panama City, Panama, to San Francisco. Yakel said no runways were affected and there was no operational impact after the incident.

Once the plane landed, the unidentified teen popped open the overwing emergency door.

"It was as if he was like flying out, like it was really fast", Sophia Gibson, a passenger who lives in San Jose, told local NBC affiliate KNTV.




17-year-old boy jumped out of a plane during landing at the airport of San Francisco. "And then this guy, I see him jump on the wing and then he starts climbing down the wing and then he just runs. And everyone was just screaming", she added, CBS SFBay Area reported.

He says they were yelling to tell the flight attendants that the door was open and someone had jumped off. Relay the message back.

Copa Airlines said that an investigation is under way and that the airline is cooperating with authorities. The teen was a passenger on a Boeing 737 from Panama City.

'We were on the runway for about an hour, ' Rodrigues said. Meanwhile, "a Copa crew member closed the exit door, and the aircraft proceeded to the gate", the airline says in a statement, per KGO. Passengers said there was a big commotion when they noticed one of the exit doors was wide open.
