  • Dallas-bound flight makes emergency landing at Sunport

Apparently an electrical fire filled the cabin with smoke forcing Southwest Airlines 3562 to land.

The captain of flight 3562 noticed smoke in the cabin and announced that the aircraft would be landing as the closest possible airport.

"Our people in Albuquerque worked to get customers onboard another aircraft to continue their journey to Dallas", officials said in a statement. "The diverted aircraft will remain in Albuquerque until our Mechanics inspect and clear its return to service".

An initial investigation indicated an electrical fire on board, according to an airport spokesperson.

Firefighters rushed to the tarmac immediately after the plane landed.

According to the Albuquerque Fire Department, two people were taken to nearby hospital. No word on the extent of their injuries. Upon arrival at Love Field, a family told WFAA one of their family members was injured while trying to jump from the wing.

A Sunday evening flight to Dallas took a risky turn for some Southwest Airline passengers.
