The Fly Jamaica plane was 20 minutes into a flight from Georgetown, Guyana, to Toronto when the pilot indicated there were problems with the Boeing 757's hydraulic system.

The Fly Jamaica Airways jet took off from Guyana around 2:10 a.m. local time with 118 people, along with two infants, and eight crew members on board.

Six people are reportedly injured after a Toronto-bound flight made an emergency landing in Guyana, according to airline officials.

"They are all stable and are being looked at", Patterson said, adding that all the passengers and crew on board had been accounted for with "no reports of any broken bones or such".

The site of the Fly Jamaica plane crash is seen in the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Guyana.

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


"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.

Bowen said 120 passengers and crew were on the plane.

Its right wing and engine were badly damaged.

"Canadian consular officials are in contact with local authorities and stand ready to provide consular assistance to Canadian citizens if needed".

After requesting an emergency landing, the plane returned to the airport, but overran the runway and crashed into a fence.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading 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.
