After landing in Houston a United Airlines flight attendant made a bizarre exit from the jet when she deployed and slid down the plane's emergency slide.
The video below shows the unidentified flight attendant tossing her luggage down the slide before jumping on and sliding down herself.
United Airlines released a statement following the incident, announcing that the unnamed attendant had been removed from flight duties.
"We hold all of our employees to the highest standard. The unsafe behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the more than 20,000 flight attendants who ensure the safety of our customers," the statement said. "United is reviewing the matter and they have removed the employee from her flying duties."
According to reports, a man was having trouble breathing at the back of the plane at the time, but it is unknown if it was a contributor to the flight attendant's decision to deploy the slide.
That man was escorted off of the aircraft in a wheelchair while the remaining 159 passengers exited the normally.
