A passenger on American Airlines Flight 920 jumped onto the wing of the plane as it approached its gate at the Miami International Airport.

According to officials, the plan was arriving from Cali, Colombia when a man opened the emergency exit door of the jet and jumped onto the wing as it approached the gate.

Once at the gate, U.S. Customs and Border Protection took the man, identified as 33-year-old Christian Segura.

Segura was taken into custody but not resisted arrest, according to authorities.

Authorities also said Segura needed medical attention, so he is being held at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

American Airlines thanked the officers for their quick response to the incident. No injuries were reported.
