Twilight actor Jackson Rathbone is thankful to be safely back on solid ground after the plane he was on made an emergency landing at southern California’s Long Beach Airport on Thursday.
The 29-year-old star, who played Cullen family member Jasper Hale in the hit vampire franchise, was headed to Austin, Texas, on JetBlue Flight 1416 when the aircraft had to turn back after one of its engines overheated. All 142 passengers and five crew members exited using the emergency slides, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told Reuters.
According to local reports, four people were treated at the scene for minor injuries and one was taken to the hospital. The rest are safe.
Rathbone recounted his scary experience on Twitter.
