America West Flight Makes Emergency Landing

(Wichita-AP) -- An America West flight carrying 153 people made an emergency landing at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport early Sunday morning.

The pilot says some turbulence apparently knocked an emergency exit open on the Airbus A-320.

After the plane landed shortly before 5 am, unidentified fluids were found leaking from the plane. Authorities are still investigating.

Six passengers were injured. But only one was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

The flight was on it's way from Las Vegas to Newark, New Jersey.
