Watch as Passengers on Aeroméxico Take Cover When Bullets Strike Plane

An Aeroméxico plane, about to depart from Culiacán to Mexico City, was struck by gunfire in a frightening incident Thursday, according to the airline company.

The incident happened at the Culiacán airport when chaos erupted across the area following the arrest of Ovidio Guzmán, son of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and an alleged leader of a sector of the cartel in Sinaloa, by Mexican officials.

Aeroméxico said the fuselage of the Embraer 190 was struck and the flight was canceled for clear security reasons.

The plane never took off, the company tweeted on their account.

After this incident, the company’s protocols were activated and the corresponding authorities were notified for the investigation.

Customers and staff members remained safe, according to a statement by the airline.
