The Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) in Guyana re-opened on Friday morning, just hours after a Fly Jamaica airliner made an emergency landing 45 minutes into its flight to Toronto, Canada.

The plane was carrying 120 passengers including two infants, plus eight crew members.

Six people were reported injured and pictures show substantial damage to the starboard wing and engine.

There were reportedly several U.S. citizens on board.

Flight departed Guyana at 2:10 AM and at 2:21 minutes, pilot indicated "there was some hydraulic problem and he requested permission to return and he did", the minister said.

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

"When we landed on the ground, the wheels were still spinning, they were not braking, there was no hydraulic brakes to brake the wheels and then we overshot the runway", the still-shaken passenger said.

The Reason Last Year’s Flu Season Was Deadly? Not Enough Vaccinations
The influenza vaccine is safe and recommended for anyone over the age of 6 months. "I was dead set against getting a flu shot". Each year in the USA , the flu is estimated to cause between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths and up to 710,000 hospitalizations.


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.

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

Amid an investigation into what caused a brand-new 737 Max jet to crash in Indonesia, another jet produced by USA aerospace and defense company Boeing crash landed in Guyana.

Officials at Fly Jamaica said flight OJ256, which was headed to Toronto, had to make an emergency landing because of a technical problem.

Patterson said that the United States' National Transportation Safety Board has been informed.

Fly Jamaica said it was providing local assistance.
