Sounds like he / she (not mentioned in the article, deliberately it seems) was trying to jump.

Unless they were at a significant altitude, there wouldn't be any de-pressurization...they're just going to fall out.

Unfortunately, this may now set a new trend in South Korea, let's hope not.

The passengers included teenage athletes who plan to attend track and field competitions in Ulsan, another southeastern city.

Sorry but, so? There were also a bunch of mothers and fathers and single folks, and elderly on board too it seems. Head scratching here?

You'd think maybe they would have been able to subdue and stop this doofus.

Maybe the writer was trying to connect it to the fact gender of the perpetrator was unknown/undetermined but was edited

Must have been very early in the flight before pressurization as afterwards, opening the door is impossible.

The one on the stretcher is an ambulance chaser type, they have ‘em in Korea too.

Must have been very early in the flight before pressurization as afterwards, opening the door is impossible.

It was actually late in the flight, during the landing descent, approximately 250m off the ground.

Here's is what it looked like inside the aircraft, after the door was already opened, the wind buffeting those poor passengers seated next to the open door:

I do, but this isn't ever on my list of things to worry about. I'm more concerned with turbulence throwing me and others around the cabin, breaking bones.

Perhaps this person is bipolar and didn't get their normal meds earlier?
