Jet dumps fuel that lands on schoolkids near Los Angeles

An airliner with engine trouble dumped jet fuel that fell on dozens of school children while the plane made an emergency return to Los Angeles International Airport. The fuel caused minor skin and lung irritation to 56 children and adults. The Delta Air Lines flight to Shanghai reported an engine problem only minutes after takeoff.

SOMEBODY is getting sued. Nobody appreciates their kid being doused with jet fuel.

The headlines make it sound like the aeroplane aimed for the playground when dumping the fuel. There were probably way more people affected and it's a good thing nothing happened to the plane, but it doesn't quite bring in clicks like "fuel dumped on children".

Hopefully they are uninjured. BUT if it was for an emergency landing, thank god the plane didnt crash.
