Copa Airlines said in a statement that over-wing emergency exits are created to be opened by passengers after the plane reaches a lower altitude to allow for an evacuation in case of an emergency.

In addition, the representative of the airport assured that the case has not affected the flight and work the runways.

The Copa Airlines Flight 208 from Panama City landed Tuesday afternoon and the incident took place around 2:30 p.m. EDT, according to SFO spokesman Doug Yakel.

Officials are also questioning passengers who were on the flight, ABC 7 reported.

"All the windows were closed, but then all of a sudden, someone said like, "Pop the windows open" and the emergency door was open".

"We are cooperating fully with the relevant authorities to support the ongoing investigation", the airline said.

'They were yelling "tell the flight attendants, relay the message back, the door's open, someone jumped off",' Crowder told the television station.
