Finally, video has been released of Steven Slater's now famously dramatic exit from a JetBlue flight.

The somewhat grainy footage, first posted on WNBC, was captured by a security camera, and shows the flight attendant deploying the emergency slide from the left side of the plane and jumping out onto it.

Slater came to the public's attention when news broke earlier this week that he cursed out a passenger over the plane's speaker system, grabbed a few beers, and abandoned the plane using its emergency chute. In the following days, conflicting reports have come out about what exactly happened on the plane, however the video makes it clear that he did deploy the chute and use it to leave the aircraft.
