Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Newark Liberty; Passengers Evacuated Via Chutes

Landing gear problems force a United Airlines flight to make an emergency landing at Newark Liberty International Airport, WCBSTV reports.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which occurred around 9:30 a.m. Sunday. The Port Authority said all 53 people aboard Flight 634 from Chicago were safely evacuated via emergency chutes.

Officials said the plane’s landing gear apparently failed to deploy properly, but it’s not yet clear why that happened.

The incident caused delays of about an hour for departing flights, and also led to a temporary shutdown of the airport – which has since reopened.
