A United Flight Had to Make an Emergency Landing After the Inflatable Evacuation Slide Deployed Inside the Cabin
A United Airlines plane was flying from Chicago to Orange County, California on Sunday night, when the plane's inflatable evacuation slide somehow deployed INSIDE the plane.
It basically filled up the entire back area of the plane where the bathrooms were. So the pilots decided to make an emergency landing in Wichita, Kansas.
United is inspecting the plane to figure out how the slide opened in mid-air . . . it's only supposed to open outside the plane when the emergency exit is opened.
No one was injured, but the passengers WERE stuck in Kansas overnight. United put them up at a hotel, and they could fly out at either 6:20 A.M. or 11:00 A.M. yesterday. (CBS 12 - Wichita / ABC News)
