A passenger aboard a flight from Eilat to Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport on Friday attempted to open the door of the aircraft while in the air, according to Channel 2.

According to the flight crew, the passenger believed the door was the entrance to the bathroom.

"I heard a scream and turned my head where I saw one of the passengers on board attempting to open an emergency exit door," according to a passenger on the flight. "He was in a panic as other passengers began yelling 'what are you doing'"?

"That's when the the flight crew pull him aside and began to interrogate him," the passenger added.

The plane landed immediately after the event without further incident.
