Everyone was able to get out of the Boeing 757 safely, although six passengers had to be checked out for minor injuries.

Fire crews were preparing for the arrival of the Emirates A380 (which was arriving at LAX to promote the new route from JFK to Dubain), but the water show was scrapped and the A380 was delayed for 45 minutes due to the emergency.
