He was then hospitalized, and an SFO spokesperson says he was uninjured and the runway was not affected in anyway. He was later transferred to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Yakel said. The penalties faced by such a minor too much in a hurry were not yet known.

He has been detained for questioning by police and will be transported to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation. He was not injured during the incident.

"It was as if he was like flying out, like it was really fast", Sophia Gibson, a passenger who lives in San Jose, told local NBC affiliate KNTV.

Copa Flight 208 had just landed at 2:30 p.m. today and was waiting to taxi to its arrival gate.

The boy reportedly started running on the tarmac before being intercepted by construction workers.




Copa Airlines said that an investigation is under way and that the airline is cooperating with authorities.

Passenger Isaac Rodrigues said they were all told to remain on the plane for over an hour as police dealt with the situation. "All other passengers and crew disembarked safely".

"All the windows were closed, but then all of a sudden, someone said like, "Pop the windows open" and the emergency door was open". The American Airlines flight 5242 was preparing for takeoff from the terminal at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

The incident did not affect operations at the airport, and the aircraft proceeded to the gate, according to the statement. Copa Airlines lands at SFO and a passenger could not wait until they got to the gate.

"People were yelling, 'Tell the flight attendants".
