In his statement, Yakel mentioned that no other flights or runaways had been affected and the boy was not injured too.

The 17-year-old was not identified, but the statement said he was a USA citizen and traveling by himself.

There was no word immediate as to why the teen left the plane.

"It was as if he was like flying out, like it was really fast", passenger Sophia Gibson of San Jose, California told broadcaster KNTV.

"All the windows were closed, but then all of a sudden, someone said like, "Pop the windows open" and the emergency door was open". An airport spokesperson says the passenger was detained by a construction crew working on the airfield and had been taken into custody.

A 17-year-old opened the emergency exit door on COPA Flight 208 and exited the aircraft onto the tarmac at San Francisco International Airport.

'They were yelling "tell the flight attendants, relay the message back, the door's open, someone jumped off",' Crowder told the television station.

Escobar said the passenger reportedly jumped out near Terminal 2 and the airplane came to a stop at Gate 82, which is at Terminal 3.

The teenager, who has not been named, then slid down the wing onto the tarmac after it landed on Tuesday. "It was pretty insane". A man from Arthertor named Matt Crowder, who was also traveling on the same flight, said that the people who were sitting near the exit stood up in shock and started shouting as soon as the boy jumped off.
