A woman on a United Airlines flight traveling from New Orleans to Houston Monday afternoon jumped out of the plane’s emergency exit after it had touched down at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The incident occurred while the plane was taxiing toward its gate, airline spokeswoman Maddie King told CNN.

The unidentified woman — who was treated for non-life threatening injuries — was not charged by police, but is reportedly undergoing psych evaluations.

Passenger Hampton Friedman — who was seated across the aisle from the exit — took a short video of the aftermath of the jump. “A lady on this flight just opened the door and jumped out of the plane,” he says in the clip.
