Delta Air Lines Evacuation Slide Falls In Back Garden

The slide ended up in the front yard of Milton resident Wenhan Huang, according to WCVB, who said the slide damaged several branches of a Japanese maple tree before it slammed into the ground.

Authorities say no one was hurt when an evacuation slide fell from a jetliner into the yard of a suburban Boston home.

His neighbor, Stephanie Leguia, was feet from where it fell and fears it could have killed someone.

'If it had hit us, we would have been dead - it's that heavy, ' Leguia told the Boston Herald. It came crashing down from a flight traveling from Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport to Boston's Logan International Airport. "I hate to think of the alternative".

Leguia was chatting with a neighbour when she saw it fall.

Delta technicians found the aircraft's slide to be missing after investigating once it landed in Boston.

Despite giving those it almost hit a shock, it isn't entirely surprising that the slide fell over Milton.

Massachusetts Port Authority spokesperson Jennifer Mehigan confirmed that the slide detached from the wing of the Delta plane, also noting that the flight landed at Logan International Airport safely. Delta maintenance crews later came to retrieve the slide. Initially, the neighbours thought the slide was a "giant silver tarp".

The Delta Air Lines-operated flight was coming from Paris, France, and was bound for Boston Logan International Airport when the incident occurred on Sunday. "The flight landed without incident and taxied to the gate under its own power".
