(Chicago, Illinois – October 28, 2016) American Airlines Flight 383, departing O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, enroute to Miami, experienced a “problem during takeoff,” which AA described as an engine malfunction. However an unnamed official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the plane suffered a “rare, serious engine failure,” in which parts actually blew off the engine and acted like “shrapnel.”

The takeoff attempt was aborted and the passengers were evacuated from the airplane using a chute. Authorities reported flames, and 21 passengers, including at least one crew member, were reported injured. They were transported to a local hospital, although no report on their condition was immediately available.
