A United flight, from Chicago to Orange County, California, made an emergency landing in Kansas on Sunday night after a slide deployed mid-air. This is newsworthy for obvious reasons, but it’s also relevant because former Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez and his girlfriend, ex-Nebraska volleyball player Kelsey Robinson, were on the flight.
Both tweeted about the scare, and Martinez tweeted a photo of the slide, with the text: “Scariest flight of all time #EmergencyLanding.”
The plane, a Boeing 737-700, had 96 passengers and five crew members onboard. It goes without saying, we’re relieved everyone is safe.
