SEOUL, May 26 (Reuters) - An Asiana Airlines plane landed safely in the South Korean city of Daegu on Friday after a door of the aircraft opened shortly before reaching the airport, a company spokesperson said.
The plane landed at Daegu airport at around 12:40 p.m. (0340 GMT) after departing from the island of Jeju an hour earlier, the airport’s flight schedule showed.
No one was hurt in the incident, but some passengers were taken to hospital suffering breathing issues due to shock, the company spokesperson said.
“Police are investigating the incident after a passenger who was sitting near the emergency exit said he touched its lever,” the official said. (Reporting by Ju-min Park and Soo-hyang Choi; Editing by Ed Davies)
