Fly Jamaica offers counseling for passengers following crash landing

Passengers on the Fly Jamaica plane which crash landed at Cheddi Jagan International Airport yesterday will be offered counselling.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority will partner with Guyana's Public Health Ministry to offer support.

Egbert Fields, Director of  the Civil Aviation Authority, made the disclosure at a media briefing yesterday.

Six passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries when the Canada-bound plane returned shortly after take-off.

The Boeing 757, carrying 128 people, including two infants, reportedly experienced hydraulic problems.

Firefighters questioned 

Meanwhile up to late Friday, at least ten members of the Guyana Fire Service were being questioned about the removal of personal items belonging to passengers from the Fly Jamaica jet that made an emergency landing.

They were the first to rush to the scene of the crash to offer help to passengers, but now investigators believe some local firefighters may have also helped themselves to the belongings of the passengers and crew in the process.

The police report that while the checked bags were safe in the cargo hold of the plane, some passengers who left their handbags and carry-on pieces in the plane’s cabin  filed Police complaints about money and gadgets  missing from their bags.
