On Friday in Manchester, England, Pakistan International Airlines Flight 702 was waiting to take off when a passenger decided to use the restroom. Only instead of opening the restroom door, the passenger opened the emergency exit, having mistaken it for the lavatory entrance. The airline said “the exit slide deployed automatically,” and CNN reports that all passengers were safe. However, the flight to Islamabad, Pakistan, was delayed by seven hours as a result of the incident.
