EMERGENCY Orient Thai Airlines flight #OX682 from Phuket to Chengdu had made emergency landing at Kunming airport

Flight OX682 was carrying Chinese tourists home from Phuket when the engine failed, and the rate of descent was so fast many passengers suffered from nosebleeds and fainted due to the sudden loss of altitude.

Some flight attendants reportedly began crying and oxygen masks were deployed, before the flight was stabilized and was forced to make an emergency landing in Kunming, China.

Passenger Lixue Ku, 47, told Daily Mail people were screaming and crying as they feared the plane would break apart in the sky or crash.
