Fagan says a truck with a staircase rolled up to the plane, allowing the passengers to get off the aircraft. They were then taken to the terminal on a bus.

She says that it's not yet clear why the tires blew, but that such incidents are not uncommon. She also stressed that the jets are designed so they can land safely after tires blow out.
