GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Friday November 9, 2018 – Ten people were injured this morning when a Fly Jamaica aircraft carrying 120 passengers and eight crew members made an emergency landing at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) in Guyana.

Officials say none of the injuries are life threatening but did not say which of the passengers, who include two infants, were hurt.

The passengers – 82 Canadians, 35 Guyanese, one Pakistani, a Trinidadian and an American – along with six crew members from Guyana and two from Jamaica, departed the CJIA at 2:10 a.m. and were heading to Toronto, Canada, when the Boeing 757 plane began experiencing technical difficulties.

The flight, which was estimated to arrive at its designation at 6:55 a.m., returned to the CJIA airport where it landed at 2:53 a.m.

    Wow, Cyril, I read the news earlier! Had no idea that you were also on that flight. Glad to hear that there were no casualties.

    Glad to hear you are beck safely, Cy; as well as no casualty nor serious injuries to anyone. Your involvement with the medical team to the Indigenous area is admirable.
    Unfortunately, I also heard that ground staff at the airport ransacked and pilfered the passengers’ belongings. Hope it is false news; as if true it would blemish Guyanese reputation.
    Veda.

    Glad you’re safe, and didn’t know you were Canadian…I guess most of the rants I publish here would get unwanted attention by Canadian social interest buffoons.
