everyone getting around it.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Passengers on a flight from Dallas to Fort Lauderdale made an unexpected stop Wednesday afternoon because of a fight and a smoldering cell phone.

Parkland native Katie Engleson tells Local 10 News she was on the flight and sitting near a man and woman who started arguing.

“It was definitely very, very frightening,” Engleson recalled.

Passengers on the flight tell Local 10 News that the woman struck the man with a cell phone, and that the phone then started smoking.

“Everyone kind of went crazy and then all of a sudden we see smoke and I heard the words ‘fire’ and then next to us there was the object literally smoking,” Engleson said.

The plane was diverted to Pensacola before eventually heading to Fort Lauderdale a few hours behind schedule.

Southwest Airlines confirmed the incident in a statement, saying:

“A Southwest flight operating from Dallas Love Field safely diverted to Pensacola International Airport on Wednesday afternoon due to a dispute between two passengers traveling together that resulted in a broken cell phone which smoldered and was placed into a battery containment bag by our Flight Attendants. After the two passengers exited the aircraft in Pensacola, the flight continued to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. We appreciate the patience, cooperation, and support of the customers onboard today.”

Engleson applauded how the Southwest Airlines crew handled the situation.

“They truly made everyone feel super safe, and I can not be more grateful for how the situation ended,” she said.

Local 10 News is working to find out the relationship between the man and woman and if they were or arrested or charged after deboarding the plane.

Two people were sent to the hospital after a single-engine plane made an emergency crash landing just northeast of Fort Collins Friday morning. The pilot radioed into the Northern Colorado Regional Airport, that the plane was making an emergency landing with two passengers inside due to an "engine out" at 10:38 a.m., according to air traffic control archives.

"We have an emergency landing, we'll be landing in a field, mayday, mayday, mayday," he said.The plane crash landed in the area of North County Road 1 and Sunwater Way, east of Cobb Lake, said Chris Wolf, a spokesperson for Poudre Fire District Authority.

Wellington Fire Protection District was the first to arrive on-scene and located two individuals who were inside the plane at the time of the crash. One of the parties was airlifted to a local hospital, while the other was transported via ambulance, Wolf said.

The victims status is unknown.
