An American Airlines plane made an emergency landing in New York minutes after takeoff. The pilot had reported engine problems.
Port Authority spokesman Pasquale DiFulco (Pas-KWAHL-ay Dee-FUHL'-koh) says some debris was found in a neighborhood. Officials could not immediately confirm reports that the debris included parts of the plane's engine.
American Flight 309 left LaGuardia Airport at 8:15 a.m. Wednesday. The pilot reported engine problems and the plane was diverted to nearby Kennedy Airport. It landed safely and no injuries were reported.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
