On Air Canada flight AC056, which was flying from Toronto to Dubai, on the runway of Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, a passenger fell six meters after opening the door. The company is currently investigating the incident which resulted in the man’s injuries.
It all happened on January 8 as 319 passengers on a flight to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, were boarding. During the boarding process, the passenger boarded the plane “normally” but did not go to his seat after boarding. He then opened the cabin door on the other side of the plane, Newsweek reported.
