The footage, posted by passenger Brandon Cox, shows passengers fleeing the cabin onto the wing. In it, a passenger can be heard saying "Do we jump off the wing?" before they leap onto the tarmac. Also audible is someone ordering passengers away from the plane saying, "Put your phones down. This is not the time to record! Let's go!"

Cox tweeted Sunday "Still cannot believe I was on this plane. Looking back through my videos and it just doesn't seem real. What a night. Very thankful everyone is safe."

Passengers were put on another plane in New Mexico to continue to their final destination.

A Dallas police officer who was on board the flight praised the airline’s handling of the situation.

“Just made an emergency landing in Albuquerque. @SouthwestAir flight attendants did a great job!” tweeted Major Max Geron.

Southwest Airlines said in a statement: "The Captain declared an emergency to receive priority handling from air traffic controllers after deviating from the filed flight plan. After safely landing, 140 passengers evacuated the aircraft on a clear taxiway. Initial reports indicate five Customers requested assessment by medical personnel."
