Montreal-Fort Lauderdale flight makes emergency landing, passengers evacuated

Air Transat Flight 942, a Boeing 737, departed from Montreal, Canada and was headed to Fort Lauderdale, Florida when it reported a possible fire in the cargo hold and diverted the flight to Newark Liberty International Airport at about 8:30 a.m., the FAA said in a tweet.

A flight to Fort Lauderdale from Montreal with 189 people aboard was forced to make an emergency landing in Newark, N.J., Saturday morning after reports of smoke inside the aircraft, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Two of the 189 passengers reported minor injuries, neither related to smoke, and one was taken to a hospital to be examined, said Steve Coleman, deputy director of media relations at the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey.

Fire crews quickly responded at Newark and the passengers were evacuated from the flight using emergency slides.

One of the injured passengers was taken to hospital for treatment.
