United Airlines plane with engine troubles drops debris in Colorado neighborhood

Large metal parts from a United Airlines airplane fell from the sky and landed in a neighborhood outside Denver, Colorado, authorities said Saturday.

While the debris caused some property damages, Broomfield police said they haven’t received reports of injuries.

A Denver International Airport spokeswoman said the United Airlines flight to Honolulu experienced an engine issue and returned to the airport, NBC affiliate KUSA reported. About 200 people were on board, and no one was injured.

Emergency medical services were sent toward the airport at the time of the incident after receiving a call of a possible engine fire.

Broomfield police urged people who find any plane debris to not move it or touch it.

The National Transportation Safety Board “wants all debris to remain in place for investigation,” the department said in a tweet.
