'Passenger just fell' from plane

Authorities in Florida are searching for a passenger who reportedly opened the rear door of a Piper PA-46 and jumped out on Thursday afternoon.

The pilot calls in "mayday, mayday, mayday", then tells an air traffic controller what has happened.

"He opened the back door and he just fell down the plane," the pilot confirmed.
