Author: Kayla Nilson  |  Category: emergency landing, Fumes

A Southwest airplane headed to Dallas from Phoenix, was forced to cut their flight short when the flight crew noticed a strange smell on board. The pilot declared an emergency, and was given priority to land in Albuquerque as smoke began to fill the cabin.

Emergency crews met the plane on the runway, and two passengers were rushed to the hospital. Five other passengers were treated on the scene.

The aircraft will remain in Albuquerque until mechanics clear it to fly again.

If you were injured on a flight, remember to seek appropriate medical care first, and to keep good records of your interactions with medical providers.
