SAN DIEGO – An American Airlines emergency slide accidentally deployed from an airplane parked at San Diego International Airport Sunday afternoon, airport authorities said Monday.

A crew member accidentally deployed the aircraft’s emergency slide on the right side of the plane Sunday at 1:40 p.m., airport spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said.  The slide came to a rest on the Gate Gourmet truck’s front loading platform.

No passengers were aboard the plane and no one was injured, according to Bloomfield.

A picture of the mishap was posted on an Instragram account by Fher PrzRangel with the message “American Airlines #fail.”

It was unknown where the airplane was headed and how long it took for the slide to be replaced.
