Copa Airlines said in a statement that over-wing emergency exits are created to be opened by passengers after the plane reaches a lower altitude to allow for an evacuation in case of an emergency. The teen, who appeared to be in emotional distress during the flight, was not injured, Yakel said.

The incident happened at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to SFO Spokesperson Doug Yakel. Police are questioning passengers who were onboard the flight.

Police dogs searched the area where the teen exited the plane, and ran on the tarmac.

The boy reportedly started running on the tarmac before being intercepted by construction workers. "And everyone was just screaming". The plane went to the assigned gate and all the passengers were de-boarded safely.

"Just a standard landing and then everyone started noticing that I was sitting behind the mid emergency exit door and everyone noticed that the door had come off", passenger Sebastian Tamarelle said.

Copa Airlines said in a statement a crew member closed the emergency door and the plane continued on to the gate, where the remaining passengers exited without incident, according to CBS San Francisco.

The airline added that an investigation was under way and that it was co-operating with the authorities.

"People were yelling, 'Tell the flight attendants".

Airport officials say no runways were affected and there was no operational impact at the airport. Copa Airlines lands at SFO and a passenger could not wait until they got to the gate.
