Boeing jet crash-lands at Guyana airport 6 people injured

"I'm still shaking, I'm so shocked", the Toronto man said from a Georgetown hotel. I tried to sleep, but I couldn't do it. There were eight crew members aboard.

Patterson said that the flight departed Guyana at 2:10 am (local time) on Friday and at 2:21 am, the pilot indicated "there was some hydraulic problem and he requested permission to return and he did".

The aircraft went to the end of the runway where spikes created to halt its progress burst several tires, he said, noting that several passengers were screaming and praying by that point. "And then the engine actually rotated 90 degrees the other direction".

The plane struck a fence and a heap of sand before coming to a stop at around 2.53a.m.

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

She also reveals for the first time that she ultimately resorted to in vitro fertilization to conceive her two daughters. She says she has a "phenomenal marriage" and "we work on our marriage".

Bowen said two elderly passengers were taken to the hospital as a precaution and the plane was safely evacuated. "They're getting kicked in the back, pushed around, walked over".

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.

"Canadian consular officials are in contact with local authorities and stand ready to provide consular assistance to Canadian citizens if needed".

The aircraft involved in the Guyana incident is 19 years old, according to information from Airfleets.Net, based on the registration number given by Flightradar 24.

Fly Jamaica is an airline headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica and commenced operations in 2013.
