Driver door opened while driving

I was taking a hard 90 degree right turn last night during some spirited driving when my driver side door popped open and the usual door alarm went off. Luckily I was able to grab it quickly and close it without issue. I'm tall but pretty slim so while I probably had some weight against the door I don't think it was too much.
Has anyone else had this happen to them?

I've actually experienced similar, but it was a rear passenger door. There was no weight on it and no indication that a door was ajar; I took a right turn and it flew open and the panicky warning beep sounded (nearly giving me a small heart attack). It hasn't happened since and to this day I have no idea how it opened by itself.

Yours sounds scarier though. Good thing you were belted and able to grab and shut it.
