Fly Jamaica flight to Toronto crash lands in Guyana as emergency declared 18 minutes in

A Trinidadian was among the 118 aboard a Fly Jamaica aircraft that crash landed in Guyana on Friday morning.

Other sources also told Demerara Waves Online News that a number of crew members and passengers have also claimed items, including passports, electronic devices have been stolen.

"We can confirm that Fly Jamaica flight OJ256 bound for Toronto returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing", the brief statement read.

Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson confirmed that six people were injured during the incident and were being treated at the Diamond Regional Hospital.

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

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

It returned to Georgetown's Cheddi Jagan International Airport just before 2am local time (6am GMT).

The pilot reportedly claimed he started to experience technical issues with the hydraulics about 20 minutes into their flight and it forced him to turn around to its departure airport, according to Mr Patterson.

Images posted on the airport's Facebook page and various sites showed the plane appearing to have gone through a chain link fence, with one of its engines tilted upward and resting on the fencing.

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.

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing.

The airline said it was providing local assistance.
