Boeing 757 crash-landing in Guyana injures 6 passengers

The Jamaica Airlines flight, bound for Toronto, suffered hydraulic issues while taking off from Georgetown airport and had to turn round and make an emergency landing.

"One of the wings came apart and the engine on the right side actually flipped over and we crashed into a big sand pile at the edge of a cliff".

St. Lucia News also there were 82 Canadians on board the flight, which was Toronto-bound.

The Boeing 757-200, registered as N524AT, overran the end of the runway and crossed through the airport perimeter fence.

"Everyone was going insane, screaming, crying for their lives, everything", said passenger Invor Bedessee, describing how some people were injured getting off the flight.

According to reports, the emergency services at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport knew that the flight, which was headed to Canada, was in trouble within 45 minutes of take-off.

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

Bowen said two elderly passengers were taken to the hospital as a precaution and the plane was safely evacuated. Canadian citizens can contact consular officials at +592-227-2081.

In a statement to FOX Business, a Boeing spokesperson said the company was aware of the reports and is in the process of gathering more information.

In July 2011, a Boeing 737-800 aircraft belonging to Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines crashed at the same airport after landing too far down the runway and running out of braking space, injuring several people. The runway then was 2,255 metres long, but is now being extended to 3,048 metres.
