Ten people were injured in scenes described as "chaos" as a Boeing airliner carrying 82 Canadians crash-landed in Guyana's capital Georgetown on Friday, skidding to a halt just before a steep drop.
The flight, which was heading to Pearson Airport, experienced some technical difficulties and had to return to CJIA.
After encountering hydraulical problems, the pilots made a decision to return to Georgetown Cheddi Jagan International Airport approximately 45 minutes after takeoff.

"They are all stable and are being looked at", Patterson said, adding that all the passengers and crew on board had been accounted for with "no reports of any broken bones or such". The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information.
