German flight makes emergency landing at Lambert

ST. LOUIS, MO. - A Condor Airlines flight from Frankfort, Germany made an emergency landing at St. Louis-Lambert Airport Wednesday afternoon after a fuel leak issue was reported. The plane was on its way to Cancun, Mexico.

About 190 people on board the plane have been taken into customs in terminal two while the airline investigates the fuel leak.

Instead of soaking up the sun and warmth of Cancun, the passengers and crew will spent much of the afternoon in customs and have since been relocated to area hotels. The airline is sending another plane to St. Louis to complete the journey to Mexico. The flight is expected to arrive in Cancun sometime Thursday.
