2 passengers, puppy exit NYC flight via slide before takeoff
Witnesses reported seeing a panicky Murdock force open a cabin door and jump out using the emergency chute leading to the runway. Murdock, 31, and Greco, 27, of Lake Worth, Florida, were taken into custody on charges including criminal mischief and trespassing, among others. According to court papers, the flight attendant told police she heard a similar comment by Murdock before he pushed past her toward an emergency exit. She then saw the man deploy the emergency exit and "pick up his dog and exit the plane by using the slide," the papers say. Security video captured the couple using the chute, the papers add.
