TIJUANA, Mexico — An Aeromexico DC-10 airliner with 112 people aboard crash-landed at Tijuana airport after its landing gear malfunctioned, officials said Saturday.
Seven passengers suffered minor injuries as they slid down an emergency chute to evacuate the jet Friday night, said David Martinez, chief of security at the airport.
It was not immediately clear what caused the accident. There were reports of an engine fire and of problems with the left landing gear.
An Aeromexico employee at the airport identified the plane as a DC-10 but referred inquiries to offices in Mexico City, where calls were unanswered.
