An aircraft engine exploded during a flight, causing large pieces of debris to fall in several cities.
United Airlines’ Boeing 777 was carrying more than 200 passengers and 10 crew members at the time of the explosion, and many have said it was a miracle that no one died in the ordeal.

Pictures and videos appeared online showing the ordeal where the plane’s engine could be seen completely engulfed in flames while other outlets showed what the plane looked like from the ground while leaving a great stream of smoke behind him.
Since then, United Airlines has issued a statement regarding yesterday’s incident. According to MailOnline, an airline spokesperson said: “Flight 328 from Denver to Honolulu suffered an engine failure shortly after departure, returned safely to Denver and was greeted by crews from driving. Emergency as a precaution. “
