Police arrest woman who tried to open plane door in flight

A 52-year-old woman from Dania Beach, Fla., was arrested Wednesday for attempting to open the exit door on a United Airlines flight as it was descending into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

She failed to open the exit door of the Boeing 737, but did set off a warning light in the cockpit.

A flight attendant was able to persuade the woman to return to her seat, and the plane landed safely.

Police have not yet released the name of today’s Stupid Person of the Day.
