Fly Jamaica Makes Emergency Landing In Guyana - Six Injured

Boeing jet crash-lands at Guyana airport 6 people injured

A Fly Jamaica Boeing 757-200 aircraft overshot the runway at Guyana's main global airport early Friday, injuring several people.

One of the aircraft's turbines is seen badly damaged after it apparently hit the barrier.

But it overshot the runway and ended up on the grass.

During a press conference, it was announced that there were 118 passengers (including 82 Canadian citizens) and eight crew members on board.

The injuries suffered by the passengers were not life-threatening.

The aircraft only came to halt after crashing into a fence and when its front wheel became wedged in a pile of sand being used for the ongoing airport expansion project, at the end of the runway.

"We can confirm that Fly Jamaica flight OJ256 bound for Toronto returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing", the brief statement read.

They were taken to hospital.

The Fly Jamaica Airways flight OJ 256 crashed at Georgetown Cheddi Jagan with 120 passengers including two infants on board.

Bedessee said takeoff had been delayed by about 45 minutes because one of the left-side doors had "not closed properly" and a maintenance crew was called to fix the problem.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading an investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under global rules, was notified, officials said. A spokesman said consular assistance would be available to those who needed it.

Boeing said it was looking into the incident. The runway then was 7,400 feet (2,255 meters) but is now being extended to 10,000 feet.
