Fly Jamaica flight to Toronto crash lands at airport in Guyana

Boeing Jet Crash-Lands At Guyana Airport, 6 Injured: Minister

It says the Boeing 757 aircraft with 118 adults and two infants on board was forced to return to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport minutes after departing for Canada because of technical difficulties and overran the airstrip.

The captain of the ill-fated Fly Jamaica Airlines jet that made an emergency landing at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport alleged that several personal items were stolen from the plane, police said.

When the plane landed, the pilots had trouble stopping it and it eventually came to a halt at the end of the runway.

Trump rails against 'rude' media in heated press conference
Acosta held onto the microphone, pulled it back, and continued with his question, saying, "Pardon me, ma'am", to the aide. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.

"At this time, we believe that all 118 passengers and eight crew members are safe".

It reports that there were 82 Canadians on board.

"Where the aircraft veered off is about the exact same place the Caribbean Airlines (plane did)... so fortunately for us on this occasion, the extension (of the runway) was there so they were able to utilise the extension", Patterson said, adding that investigations into the matter had already started.

Livescore from Champions League Group B fixture
Messi had trained the same day, along with other players not involved in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano. He has travelled with the squad to Milan without the all-clear from the club's medical team.

About 20 minutes into the flight, the pilot indicated the plane was experiencing problems with its hydraulic system, Guyana officials said at a Friday morning news conference.

"The reports are of back pain and such, no reports of any broken bones", Minister Patterson said.

One of the aircraft's turbines is seen badly damaged after it apparently hit the barrier. An emergency inflatable slide had been deployed from one of the front doors.

Mac Miller Died of Accidental Overdose of Fentanyl, Cocaine, and Alcohol
Miller's death came just months after he split from Ariana Grande and weeks after he was charged with a DUI. The 26-year-old rapper died in September after being discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home.

Guyana's Transportation Minister David Patterson said those hurt in the incident had been taken to hospital. The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information. The runway then was 2,255 metres long, but is now being extended to 3,048 metres.
