JetBlue air steward Steven Slater pleads guilty

A US flight attendant who caused a media frenzy by quitting his job and jumping out of a plane using an emergency exit slide has pleaded guilty to attempted criminal mischief.

Steven Slater will now undergo at least a year of counselling and substance abuse treatment.

"At the end of the day, I'm a grown-up, and I must take responsibility for my actions," the 39-year-old said. Matthew Wells reports.
