BALTIMORE (AP) — Southwest Airlines says the nose gear of a plane departing Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport failed just after the aircraft pushed back from the gate.

The airline said in a statement Thursday night that no injuries were reported among the 126 passengers and five crew members.

TV station WBAL reports (http://bit.ly/2azty3S ) emergency crews were called to help passengers off the disabled aircraft.

Another plane took the passengers on to Atlanta after a delay from the original departure time of about four hours.

Southwest says there was no other impact to flights to or from the airport.
