The nose gear of a United Express airplane collapsed, forcing it to unexpectedly land at the San Antonio International Airport last Sunday, December 4. However, authorities said everyone on the plane was evacuated safely.
San Antonio Fire Department spokesman Woody Woodward said 55 people were safely evacuated using the plane’s emergency slides. He said only one passenger sustained injuries. A woman hurt her ankle, but she refused medical attention because she was adamant about making her connecting flight. Woodward said no fire erupted during the crash. The airplane involved was identified as Skywest Flight 5588, operating as United Express, which was headed to Monterrey, Mexico from Houston and got diverted to San Antonio.
