Idiot Jumps Out Of Plane On Taxiway At LAX

A flight was delayed out the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday evening after a passenger opened a plane door and jumped out while the aircraft was taxiing before takeoff, Fox News reports.

The incident was reportedly being investigated as a hijacking attempt after the suspect allegedly tried to open the cockpit door multiple times but eventually opened an exit door, FOX 11 reported. 

It also happened on the same day Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly landed at the same airport en route to her home in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood after her visit to El Paso, Texas, earlier in the day, Fox News reports. The Texas trip was Harris’ first visit to the U.S.-Mexico border region since becoming vice president. 

FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported the suspect was taken to a hospital for his injuries after allegedly using the plane’s automatically inflated emergency slide to leave the aircraft once he opened the door — the Salt Lake City-bound SkyWest flight finally departed at 10:36 p.m. PT after originally being scheduled to leave at 6:55 p.m. 

On Thursday night, another suspect allegedly breached a gate at a FedEx air cargo facility at the same airport and drove onto the airfield, per Fox News. At least two runways were temporarily shut down as the driver was taken into custody.

  1. It feels like we’re living in a society without rules currently.
    They got away with election fraud, so far;
    They got away with calling Jan 6th, “attacks on the Capitol”;
    They got away with lockdowns and insane mandates;
    They’re getting away with requiring vaccines (for many companies/venues);
    Crime is skyrocketing everywhere, even ‘nice neighborhoods.’

    Donald Trump… COME BACK!!
