A passenger jet with nearly 140 people aboard quickly returned to Orlando International Airport late Wednesday after a possible mechanical problem, airport spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell said.

There were no injuries.

interesting. Its funny how the news media gets all over these stories of emergency landings that originate from an engine failure or what not, but engine failures aren't all that dangerous and occur at least once a day around country.
