Two injured in Delta flight evacuation in Boston

BOSTON (Reuters) - Two people were injured when a Delta Air Lines flight to Boston was evacuated on Friday after the pilot detected smoke in the cabin upon landing, an airport official said.

Delta flight 1908, with 40 passengers and five crew members, completed its trip from New York's LaGuardia airport at 7:26 a.m. and was taxiing at Boston's Logan airport when the pilot noticed the smoke, said Richard Walsh, a spokesman for Massport, which runs the airport.

Walsh said one of the injured people was taken to hospital, but he did not know the extent of the injuries or how they were caused. All passengers have been evacuated and the plane is now being inspected, he said.
