Southwest 737 lands at Yeager Airport after hole in fuselage

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Southwest Airlines 737 aircraft made a
emergency landing in Charleston after the passenger cabin became
depressurized after a hole appeared in the fuselage.

Central West Virginia Regional Airport Authority spokesman Brian
Belcher says Flight 2294 was diverted to Yeager Airport and landed
shortly after 6:30 p.m. Monday. There were 126 passengers and five
crew members on board.

Southwest spokeswoman Marilee McInnis said the football-sized hole was
located mid-cabin, near the top of the aircraft. McInnis said a
replacement plane was to take the passengers to Baltimore.

Belcher says the plane, which left Nashville about 4:15 p.m. CDT and
was headed to Baltimore, landed without incident. No one was injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board is trying to determine what
might have caused the damage, McInnis said.
