An American Airlines flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York had to be aborted on Tuesday after two of the plane's tires were blown to shreds on the tarmac during takeoff.   

Flight 2898 to Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport was halted and cancelled just after 1 p.m. due to a mechanical issue, according to American Airlines. 

The plane, which was a Boeing 737-800, pulled over safely to the side of the runway and 142 passengers as well as six crew members aboard were asked to evacuate before being transferred to the terminal via a bus. They waited at the airport to board another aircraft with continuing service to Phoenix.

No injuries related to the incident were reported.
