    Plane’s Emergency Slide Accidentally Deployed, Flight Delayed By Hours

    A flight to Denver from the Bradley International Airport in Connecticut, USA, was delayed by over two and a half hours due to the plane’s slide being accidentally deployed. According to WVIT-TV, the chute was accidentally deployed from a Delta Air Lines plane before the passengers boarded. The mishap left passengers stranded for almost three hours.

    According to WVIT-TV, of the 158 passengers on the original flight, about two dozen opted to continue on the later flight, while others were accommodated on other flights.
