Flight heading to Cleveland from Jamaica makes emergency landing in Miami

MIAMI, Florida -- A flight heading to Cleveland from Jamaica had to make an emergency landing in Miami on Friday.

Swift Air Flight 933 was expected to land at Hopkins International Airport at around 5:30 p.m., but was diverted to Miami.

Marc Henderson with Miami International Airport says it was believed there may have been a fire in the cargo section, but it turns out there was not.

There are 155 people on board the flight. No injuries were reported.

Passengers say everything seemed fine until they were about a half hour into the flight and things got scary.

"They said we're in an emergency situation. They went into procedures and what to do, how to position yourself, and we smelled definitely something burning in the plane," Austin Calvetta told FOX 8 News.

Calvetta told us all of the passengers were cheering and giving high-fives to the pilot and crew when they landed safely.

It is not known if they will be departing Miami tonight.
