Passengers evacuate Delta Airlines jet after landing in Denver

Delta flight from Detroit evacuated upon landing in Denver after smoke reported on plane

Another passenger said the cabin filled with smoke as the plane landed. "Why aren't the masks dropping down?,'" he told Denver's 9News.

CBS Denver reported that an airport spokesperson said one passenger was transferred to the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and others were injured during the evacuation, but none of those injuries were serious.

Delta Airlines Flight 1854 from Detroit had already been delayed in Detroit before the flight departed, according to flight records and a passenger who was on the plane.

"After a couple of minutes, the flight attendant was like, 'Everyone get low to the ground and cover your mouth with a blanket, or clothes, or whatever you have'".

Denver International Airport said the emergency evacuation happened while the plane was taxiing to the terminal.

"She yelled, 'evacuate the plane, ' and seconds later, the doors popped open. We all jumped down the slide and got out of there as fast as we could". Delta says the plane stopped and its 146 passengers used the plane's slides and over-wing exits to escape the cabin.

Passengers had to evacuate after their Delta Airlines jet landed at Denver International Airport Tuesday night.

"Once the crew determined that emergency evacuation was necessary, they quickly and professionally directed passengers off the aircraft through the various exits onboard", Black said.

Delta issued a statement Wednesday stating, "The safety of Delta's customers and crew is our top priority and we apologize for the concern this situation this caused."
Flight operations at the Denver airport were not impacted.

Another passenger told CNN that the cabin filled up with smoke as the plane made the landing.
