Jetblue E190 near Orlando on Nov 20th 2013, slide deployed into cabin in flight


A Jetblue Embraer ERJ-190, registration N228JB performing flight B6-1266 from Fort Myers,FL to Boston,MA (USA) with 74 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing through FL320 about 5nm west of Orlando,FL (USA) when one of the front slides deployed pinning a flight attendant against the aircraft wall. The flight crew stopped the climb, declared emergency and diverted to Orlando for a safe landing on Orlando's runway 36R about 25 minutes later. No injuries occurred.

A passenger reported a loud bang and one of the slides deployed obviously by itsself filling the whole area and pinning the forward flight attendant against the wall. The flight attendant managed to free his head a short while later. After landing all passengers left the aircraft through the rear doors.

A replacement Embraer ERJ-190 registration N351JB reached Boston with a delay of 4 hours.
