Passengers Evacuated After Tire Blows on Plane


Philadelphia, PA - Emergency crews responded to the scene after a plane's tire blew and its nose gear collapsed during takeoff on Thursday.

Passengers hit the emergency chutes and then hit the ground running - everyone is safe.

They say US Airways Flight 1702 was headed to Fort Lauderdale.

There were about 150 aboard when the takeoff was aborted and the plane came to a screeching halt.

US Airways provided another plane for the passengers still wanting to go to Florida.
