(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after she allegedly opened a plane’s emergency door, which she mistook for the entrance to a toilet, police in China said.

The incident unfolded as the plane was ready to take off from the airport in Chongqing.

The woman boarded the China Southern flight to Shenzhen, and had to use the bathroom. When she saw the long line for the toilet, she looked around and realized another door with no one waiting in line.

The woman mistook the emergency door for the bathroom entrance as it was her first time on board a plane. By turning the latch, the woman caused the emergency slide to deploy, and as a result, the flight was delayed for two hours.

The woman was not allowed to take the flight to Shenzhen, and was arrested by the police.
