And finally… lax security

A man has been arrested after jumping out of a passenger jet during take-off, injuring himself in the process.

The man, who has not been named, apparently decided to make a late exit from the flight after an on-board altercation.

The United Express flight was taxiing from a gate area at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at the time, CNN reports.

The emergency slide was activated, but the man reportedly suffered an injury on his way out and was taken to hospital.

Police and airport authorities are still trying to establish his motive.
