Officials say Fly Jamaica aircraft overshoots runway, multiple injured

Multiple Passengers Injured After A Toronto Bound Plane Crash Landed Due To

Officials say a Fly Jamaica Boeing 757-200 aircraft has overshot the runway at Guyana's main worldwide airport, injuring several people.

Patterson said the injuries were not life-threatening and the injured were taken to a hospital near the airport on the South America country's Atlantic coast.

At a local press conference, it was announced that there were 82 Canadians on board.

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.

In 2011, a Caribbean Airlines jet carrying 163 people crashed as it landed at the Guyana airport, injuring several passengers.

"To date, we have no reports of any Canadian citizens being injured", said government spokesman Philip Hannan in Ottawa.

Images posted on the airport's Facebook page showed the nose of the Fly Jamaica Airways plane resting against a perimeter fence.

"Then the plane swerved to the right and the right wing was flapping and it ripped apart away from the main fuselage", he said.

Fly Jamaica released a statement confirming that flight OJ256 "suffered an accident on landing".

Fly Jamaica said it was providing local assistance.

"I am all safe, but shaking", he wrote in a Facebook post.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority launched an investigation, and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under global rules, was notified, officials said. The Public Infrastructure Minister said the United States' National Transportation Safety Board has been informed.
