A passenger plane in Pakistan had to make an emergency landing at an airport in Lahore on Tuesday due to a fault in the aircraft's landing gear, and at least ten people were injured when the tyre burst during the crash-landing.
The Shaheen Airlines Karachi-Lahore flight reportedly skidded off the runway during the landing and the tyre of the plane burst at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore.
There were 276 people on board the plane at the time of the emergency landing, according to Pakistan's Dawn. However, The Express Tribune has reported that there were 112 passengers and seven crew members on board.
The pilot had reportedly sought to make an emergency landing after being alerted by airport authorities of the faulty landing gear.
Images shared on social media showed the plane resting on a field next to the runway.
The passengers were evacuated through the emergency exit, and at least 10 people are said to have suffered injuries. However, no one is critically injured.
