MILTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say no one was hurt when an evacuation slide fell from an airliner into the yard of a suburban Boston home.
A company spokeswoman confirms to the Boston Herald that the uninflated slide fell from a Delta Air Lines flight from Paris inbound to Boston’s Logan International Airport at about noon Sunday.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the pilot reported a loud noise as the plane approached Logan and landed safely.
Police in Milton south of Boston alerted the FAA that the slide had been found in a resident’s yard.
Wenhan Huang tells The Patriot Ledger he was doing yard work when the slide took out several branches of his Japanese maple.
His neighbor, Stephanie Leguia, was feet from where the slide fell and fears it could have killed someone.
