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

Six people were injured after a Fly Jamaica flight from Guyana to Toronto crash landed at a Guyanese airport overnight, according to airline officials.

The Fly Jamaica plane which was en route to Toronto is said to have developed a "technical problem".

That's when it suffered "an accident on landing", a statement from Fly Jamaica reads.

Flight Alerts, a Twitter account monitoring aircraft, reported the plane overshot the runway and crashed into a fence.

Of that number, six persons received minor injuries.

The flight, which was heading to Pearson Airport, experienced some technical difficulties and had to return to CJIA.

Cause of Soyuz-FG Launch Failure Revealed - Probe Commission
Russian Federation stands to lose that monopoly with the arrival of SpaceX's Dragon and Boeing's Starliner crew capsules. A Russian Soyuz rocket carrying two people failed mid-flight on October 12.

The Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson told reporters during a press conference: "The reports are of back pain and such, no reports of any broken bones".

That included 82 Canadians, one American, 35 Guyanese, one Pakistani and one Trinidadian.

Just 11 minutes later, the pilot indicated a hydraulic problem and requested permission to return to the airport.

As such, preparations were made for an emergency landing but the Pilot was unable to get the aircraft to an absolute stop before the end of the runway. However, he noted that the extended runway, though not opened at the time, served to cushion the impact.

Guyana's Chief Medical Officer, Shamdeo Persaud, said five people had been referred to another hospital for "further investigation" for spinal injuries. A hotline has been set up for family members looking for information at +592-261-2281 or +592-600-7022.

Fly Jamaica said the airline is now making arrangements to fly the plane's passengers out of Guyana.
