Man daringly opens plane's emergency exit door to 'get some fresh air'

A man on board a Chinese domestic flight left passengers in shock when he opened the plane's emergency exit door before take off. 

Airport staff quickly informed the pilot of the man's "adventure" and promptly attempted to fix the plane's safety doors.

The man, who is a first-time flier, claimed that he wanted to get some fresh air so he decided to open the Xiamen Air plane's door.

 Crew members later relocated him to a seat far from the exit.

Despite the fiasco, the plane managed to take off without delay. 

A spokesman for Xiamen Air told Southern Metropolis Daily: "It was his first travel by air - he did not cause delay or any other direct loss to the airline."
