Beijing police said on Tuesday that a woman was detained for 12 days after she activated an emergency inflatable slide on a jetliner waiting at the Beijing Capital International Airport to fly to Xiamen nike hyperadapt 1.0 cheap , Fujian Province, Beijing News reports.
The woman's behavior stunned passengers on the Xiamen Airlines Boeing 757 when a staff member warned that the inflatable slide can only be opened when there is an emergency. The flight was canceled and the 113 passengers onboard were rearranged to other flights later in the day. The woman might also face huge fines.
According to the newspaper, an executive from Xiamen Airlines said the minimum cost for fixing the slide was about 100,000 yuan ($14,700) if there was no damage to its airbag. Otherwise, the direct loss could hit approximately 450 nike react element 87 anthracite cheap ,000 yuan.
Indirect losses, including the flight cancellation, rearrangement of passengers and adverse effects on subsequent flights were being estimated, the executive added.
Netizens remarked jokingly that the woman made "the most expensive experiment."
According to online posts, after hearing the alert that the lever for the evacuation slide should only be touched under emergency circumstances, the woman wanted to see what would happen if it was activated under normal conditions.
Flight attendants immediately stopped her nike react element 87 light bone cheap , only to find that the slide had already been inflated, unfolded and extended outside. The woman was then handed over to police.
Law experts also said she could face high bills in compensation from the airline company.
On March 25, 2016, a passenger on board a China Southern jetliner also activated an emergency slide, resulting in a flight delay. The passenger was investigated by police.
BUDAPEST, June 21 (Xinhua) -- The three-time Olympic champion Katinka Hosszu published a long statement on her Facebook page on Wednesday nike react element 87 mens , calling on swimmers all around the world to take a stand against the International Swimming Federation (FINA), who introduces new regulations without consulting with the competitors.
At the end of May, the FINA has significantly modified the regulations of the 2017 edition of the FINA Swimming World Cup, the new measures were then harshly criticized.
One of the most important modification is that a swimmer will be able to compete in only four individual races, whereas Hosszu, who won all of the previous World Cups since 2012 undercover nike react element 87 red green , was used to compete in as many as ten races per event.
"Everyone thinks that the new World Cup rule changes are against Katinka Hosszu. That can be partially true, because they definitely screwed me over," she wrote.
But she also underlined that she received unwanted advantages from FINA: "I could view myself as a victim, but, on the other hand, I get advantages from FINA that I never requested. I don't want to automatically advance to the finals of the World Cup competitions based on my previous results at international competitions. I want to race for the final spots with young talents undercover nike react element 87 red mens cheap , like Iwasakis or Egerszegis, and if they are better than me at the age of 14, let them show their talent. With the new World Cup rule changes they have to start from a disadvantage -- they have to wait until the sport's top athletes get old or finish their careers before they can have the advantage of automatic advancement to finals. This is just not fair."
She also considered harmful that every event is not going to be offered at every stop: "Now, for example, a top German swimmer might not compete in his own country because his main event (or events) will only be offered in Moscow or Eindhoven, but not Berlin. Why does FINA make rules that are harmful for the athletes undercover nike react element 87 red cheap , the organizers of the competition, the World Cup itself and swimming as a whole? These rules are risking the future of our sport, which I am not willing to support with my silence."
She later on compared herself to NBA star Lebron James or Tennis idols like Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
"How can a sport label rules 'innovative' when they are actually destructive, limiting the participation of the sport's top athletes? Will the NBA limit one of its biggest stars, LeBron James, in his eighth participation in the big final next year? Will the ATP try to remind Nadal and Federer that their time is over? As one of the current faces of swimming undercover nike react element 87 white blue cheap , I should be focused on preserving and extending my career by not taking on too many events and not having my image being overused. Instead, here I am fighting to be allowed to swim as much as I want and to continue to popularize my sport."
She concluded her letter by describing what is happening at FINA as chaotic, and calling on swimmers to unite and take a stand against FINA.
"It's not an exaggeration to say that FINA is in chaos. There is the lack of transparency in the financials, the constantly changing rules, and leaders with no vision. At first it may seem a bit scary, but this is the time for us undercover nike react element 87 white red , the swimmers, to do something about the future of our sport," she explained.
"The opportunity has always been right in front of us. But it is up to us to take the chance. Just like in any performance, we all have to start this together, but instead of us competing against each other, this time we have to fight together as one undercover nike react element 87 white mens cheap ," she underlined.
