Later, Mianyang Nanjiao Airport released a statement confirming that a passenger opened an emergency door on the left of the aircraft while other passengers were preparing to leave because the cabin was "too hot and stuffy".
He said he soon realized he had activated the escape slide, and "panicked". He told the security personnel that he was feeling very hot in the plane, so he pushed the window handle downwards, but when a door opened, he was very scared.
According to Chen, he "lifted the latch next to the window" and "the door just fell off".
The airline claimed it would co-operate with the authorities for further investigation procedures.
