A Fly Jamaica plane en route to Toronto, Canada was forced into a crash landing at an airport in Guyana recently following a ‘technical problem’ as reported by some.

Six passengers were reportedly injured after the Boeing 757 turned back around only forty-five minutes into its flight time. The Independent stated that this was due to a “hydraulics problem”.

When enacting the emergency landing at the airport, the aircraft overran the runway and crashed through a perimeter fence.

As stated in The Independent, a statement from the airline noted: ““We can confirm that flight OJ256 bound for Toronto has returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing.

“At this time, we believe that all 118 passengers and 8 crew members are safe. We are providing local assistance and will release further information as soon as it is available.”
