St. Lucia News was reporting that six people were injured, but they were stable and being treated at Diamond Regional Hospital in Georgetown.

Among those on board were 35 Guyanese, 82 Canadians, one American citizen, a Trinidadian and one Pakistani.

"Everyone was going insane, screaming, crying for their lives, everything", said passenger Invor Bedessee, describing how some people were injured getting off the flight.

It had taken off not long before heading for Toronto.

Six people were reported injured and pictures show substantial damage to the starboard wing and engine.

It returned to Georgetown's Cheddi Jagan International Airport just before 2am local time (6am GMT).

The aircraft went to the end of the runway where spikes created to halt its progress burst several tires, he said, noting that several passengers were screaming and praying by that point.

The aircraft only came to halt after crashing into a fence and when its front wheel became wedged in a pile of sand being used for the ongoing airport expansion project, at the end of the runway.

In the meantime, Fly Jamaica is tasked with taking care of its passengers.

The plane had 118 passengers, two infants and eight crew members on board.

It says Flight OJ256 "suffered an accident on landing", but offered no other details on the nature of the accident or possible injuries. An inflatable slide was then deployed to help passengers evacuate the aircraft. The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information.

The incident is not the first at Guyana's largest airport.

That's when it suffered "an accident on landing", a statement from Fly Jamaica reads. The runway then was 7,400 feet (2,255 meters) but is now being extended to 10,000 feet.
