A Fly Jamaica flight en route to Toronto crash landed early Friday morning in Guyana.

The injuries suffered by the passengers were not life-threatening.

The injured received treatment at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre.

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

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.

The plane barrelled through a chain-link fence before finally coming to a halt at the top of an embankment, Bedessee said.

The Minister confirmed that the Fly Jamaica flight crashed at the same point where a Caribbean Airlines flight crashed in 2011. However, the extended runway has not been open yet and was not available for the emergency landing.

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. A hotline has been set up for family members looking for information at +592-261-2281 or +592-600-7022.

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.

A Guyanese government official is expected to provide an update on the incident at 10 a.m. ET. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
