Southwest Airline Flight Passengers Jump From Plane After Emergency Landing after smoke, odor fill cabin


Passengers on board a Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines flight used escape slides to evacuate the plane after smoke filled the aircraft’s cabin, prompting an emergency landing in New Mexico.

Southwest flight 3562 departed Phoenix Sunday night and was headed for Dallas Love Field when passengers reported smoke in the Boeing 737’s cabin.

The plane was forced to land in Albuquerque after what might have been an electrical fire.

The Albuquerque Fire Department tweeted that two people were taken to local hospitals. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known.

Several emergency vehicles could be seen on the runway after the plane landed.

“A flight to remember,” said Brandon Cox, who tweeted video of himself and other passengers jumping off the aircraft’s wing. “Something I hope I never experience again. You see these things in movies and never expect it to happen to you!”

“Most importantly everyone is out safe but man what a scare,” he wrote.

Passengers arrived in Dallas early Monday morning.
