Close Call of the Day: Propeller Slices Through Plane During Crash Landing in Canada

This is the stuff of nightmares, especially if you're already scared of flying.

An Air Canada flight was forced to make a crash landing on Thursday, when one of its tires burst soon after take-off from Calgary.

But as the plane went down, the landing gear collapsed, and its propeller broke off, slicing into the plane and hitting passenger Christina Kurylo in the head.

Fortunately, no one died, and there were only minor injuries.

"I'm really lucky. It could have been a million times worse," said Christina Kurylo. "I could have died, you know, you never know what could have happened."

Kurylo was one of 5 employees from an Alberta-based radio station that were all on board when the incident occurred. And they seem to be taking it all in stride.

No reason to name the killer. We don't want to show people an easy way to get their name on the news. Praise the hero, not the killer.
