Bound flight makes emergency landing in Albuquerque after cabin fills with smoke

An "unusual smell" in the cabin led the flight crew of a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-800 to make an emergency landing at Albuquerque International Sunport on March 11.

Southwest flight 3562 took off from Phoenix on Sunday night and was headed for Dallas Love Field Airport, according to KRQE-TV. "Initial reports indicate five customers requested assessment by medical personnel".

Southwest Airlines 3562 landed at Sunport around 8 p.m. local time (10 p.m. EDT), after smoke reportedly started filling up the cabin of the plane.

Fire officials in Albuquerque tweeted that two people were injured and taken to a hospital.

An injury slowed Hali's 2017 season, and his productivity has declined in recent years. The Kansas City Chiefs released former Beaufort standout Ron Parker on Monday.

Remaining passengers were put on another flight to Dallas that left Albuquerque early Monday morning. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known.

One passenger aboard the flight, a Dallas Police officer, tweeted that Southwest handled the emergency swiftly and professionally. The airport officials, however, praised the flight's crew for their smooth and professional handling of the situation.

This is a developing story.

Southwest Airlines said the diverted aircraft remains in Albuquerque while mechanics inspect the plane.
