A passenger opened an emergency exit on an Asiana Airlines flight as it was preparing to land in South Korea on Friday, causing air to blast inside the cabin.

When the plane carrying nearly 200 passengers was around 200 meters (650 feet) above the ground, a passenger sitting near the emergency exit "opened the door manually by touching the lever", according to Asiana's representative.

The incident caused some passengers to have breathing difficulties, and several people were taken to a hospital after the landing, the carrier said, adding that there were no major injuries or damage.
