Aircraft on final approach to LAX ‘dumps jet fuel on elementary school playground’

A plane coming into land at LAX reportedly dumped jet fuel on an elementary school playground Tuesday afternoon, leaving 17 children and six adults injured. 

Shocking video shows two lines of fuel coming from the Boeing 777, believed to have been operated by Delta.  

The LA county fire department said 17 children and six adults ‘all complained of minor injuries’ and were ‘being triaged by LACoFD Paramedics and Firefighters’. 

Children Park Avenue Elementary School in Cudahy are said to have been exposed. 

The fire service had earlier tweeted: ‘Units on-scene elementary school assessing multiple patients after apparent fuel dump by aircraft on final approach to LAX hits playground.’ 

DailyMail.com has contacted Delta for comment. Fox 11 reports the aircraft was travelling to Shangai when it was forced to turn back minutes after takeoff.

Images from the 8000 block of Park Avenue show a huge response from emergency crews Tuesday afternoon. 

The incident was reported shortly before 12:30 p.m local time and 70 firefighters and paramedics responded. 

The fire service tweeted: ’70 firefighters and paramedics on-scene and committed to providing care for those injured. FFs working to confirm substance dropped by aircraft, although initial reports stated smell of jet fuel in area.’  

One Twitter user commented: ‘Now The Whole City Smells Like Fuel And Everything Is Covered In Jet Fuel!’ 

Another added: ‘@LAFD is responding to a hazmat, it sounds like people, possible kids at a school, got jet fuel dumped on them from the Delta flight that made the emergency landing.’  

Two classes are said to have been outside when the jet fell. Students and staff were told to stay inside. The plane later landed safely.
