However, no one got injured due to the emergency landing. "The passengers are currently being assisted by teams dispatched to the location", says Air France, which is now working to re-route passengers to Los Angeles.

The pilot came on over the loudspeaker and said the plane had “lost” one of its engines and would be attempting to land in Canada, said Adams.

Terrified Air France passengers bound for Los Angeles International Airport were diverted to Eastern Canada Saturday after one of the aircraft's engines exploded over the Atlantic Ocean. An Air France statement confirmed the engine had suffered "serious damage".

The four-engine airliner left Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport Saturday morning. The engine was made by Engine Alliance, a joint venture between General Electric Co and United Technologies Corp's Pratt & Whitney unit.
