Flight Attendant at JFK Pulls Emergency Chute

By now you have heard about the JetBlue flight attendant who was so fed up with the treatment that he received from a passenger that he pulled the emergency chute and jumped off the plane. Jet Blue employee Steven Slater, 38, of Belle Harbor, Queens got into a verbal altercation with a passenger after the plane had landed.  He then went to the public address system and cussed out everyone on the plane, especially the woman that he was arguing with.  He then grabbed some beer from the plane pulled the emergency chute and slid off the Embraer 190 plane.  According to police sources, he threw his luggage down first and said something to the effect of “there goes 28 years,” before he took the plunge.

Now that’s someone who was truly fed up.  I don’t condone what he did, but I’m sure all of us have been at that point where you are ready to say “forget it, I’m through”.  Or like Popeye used to say, “I’ve had all I can stand, I can’t stands no more!”

Slater is being charged with 2nd-and 4th-degree criminal mischief, 1st- and 2nd-degree reckless endangerment and criminal trespass in the 3rd degree, according to a spokeswoman for  Queens DA Richard Brown. He faces up to 7 years in prison if convicted.
