2 Planes Collide on 🇨🇦Toronto 🛬Airport 🛣Runway

A WestJet plane from Cancun, Mexico, had been stationary and waiting to go to a gate at Pearson International Airport just after 6pm on Friday night when it was hit by a Sunwing aircraft. The Sunwing, which had no passengers on board, was being towed out of a gate at the time.

The collision caused a small fire on the Sunwing's wing, causing passengers to scream, video footage of the incident showed. Passenger Adrianna Lobo said the incident had been "really scary".

None of the passengers were injured but the airport said in a statement that one of its firefighters was being treated in hospital. Spokeswoman Lauren Stewart said that emergency crews were "on hand and responded immediately". The 168 WestJet passengers were all taken safely to the terminal.
