Surveillance video from the Sanya Fenghaung International Airport in Hainan shows China Eastern flight MU233's slide deploy around 9p.m.

The man said he did not pay attention to the safety instructions at the beginning of the flight and didn't realize the slide was only in case of emergencies.

Flight attendants claim they tried to stop the deployment but failed.

The flight ended up being delayed for two hours and the cost to repair the damaged door and slide will be over $16,000.

A previous passenger on the Ravn Alaska flight brought a pet snake aboard. He got off at an earlier stop, but his snake did not. 

The pale yellow, 5-foot snake was eventually found sleeping near the back of the plane, first spotted by a boy who saw it partially covered by a carry-on bag.

Crew members grabbed the snake and put it in a garbage bag. The nonvenomous reptile spent the rest of the flight in an overhead bin.

The passenger did not declare the snake before boarding the flight, which is a violation of Ravn Alaska policy, the airline said.
