Phoenix-to-Dallas Southwest Airlines flight diverted to Albuquerque after smoke fills cabin

Southwest flight 3562 left Phoenix but made the unscheduled landing late on Sunday night due to what may have been an electrical fire on board, KRQE reports.

A flight made an emergency landing at a United States airport, sending panicked passengers leaping from a wing on to the ground after crew members screamed at them to get away from the aircraft, passengers and officials have said. "The diverted aircraft will remain in Albuquerque until our Mechanics inspect and clear its return to service", added the statement. Passengers were carefully removed from the flight and driven to the terminal via transport buses.

Fire officials in Albuquerque tweeted that two people were injured and taken to a hospital. Their injuries are unknown at this time.

According to ABC affiliate KOAT, the people onboard the plane described the experience as scary. The airport tweeted their praise of the firefighters "for a quick response".
