"We can confirm that flight OJ256 bound for Toronto has returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing", read a release from the Airline.

St. Lucia News was reporting that six people were injured in the incident, but were stable and being treated at the Diamond Regional Hospital in Georgetown.

According to reports, the emergency services at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport knew that the flight, which was headed to Canada, was in trouble within 45 minutes of take-off.

"When we landed on the ground, the wheels were still spinning, they were not braking, there was no hydraulic brakes to brake the wheels and then we overshot the runway", the still-shaken passenger said.

Fly Jamaica says the plane had problems with its hydraulics and had to return to the airport shortly after takeoff.

Images posted on the airport's Facebook page and various sites showed the Fly Jamaica Airways plane appearing to have gone through a chainlink fence, with one of its engines tilted upward and resting on the fencing.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading an investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under worldwide rules, was notified, officials said. The US National Transportation Safety Board was alerted.

Fly Jamaica said it was providing local assistance.
