One witness, Isaac Seremba, who works at the airport, described the fall from one of the stationary plane’s emergency exits as an apparent “suicide” attempt.

Local newspaper, The Daily Monitor also cited unnamed sources as saying the woman appeared to have jumped intentionally from the plane.

“The exact cause of the incident was not yet clear but some eye witnesses cited possible suicide. She was seen holding what looked like a glass bottle under her chin before she made the fall.

 

“Other witnesses said they had seen her in a verbal exchange with colleagues as they boarded the plane,” the report said.
