(WFLX) - A bit of panic for passengers on board a Southwest airline flight was created when one of the passengers tried to open an exit door in the middle of the air.

The plane left Chicago heading to California but had to divert to Nebraska. Several passengers reportedly stopped the guy trying to open the emergency exit.

Some say he appeared to be under the influence of either drugs or alcohol.
