Denpasar. Qatar Airways crew and staff at the Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport were shocked on Sunday after a man jumped out of an aircraft as soon as it landed.
The man, identified as Iranian national Foroughin Monteza Baratali, was on flight QR 638, which originates from Doha and transits in Singapore before landing in Denpasar.
As soon as it landed, the man abruptly opened the cabin door and jumped out onto the tarmac.
Alive but injured, airport officers took him to International Medical Center in Kuta, where he is still staying under police guard.
“He suffered broken bones in different parts of his body,” physician Yoga Bharata wrote in a medical report for the police.
The local immigration office said they believed Baratali was trying to avoid going through the immigration desk because his name came up on a travel ban list.
“We’re still investigating what crime he committed to be put in the travel ban list,” said Wayan Sudana, the head of the Ngurah Rai Immigration Office. “He will be deported after being treated.”
