Upon landing, slides were deployed from the Boeing 737, which contained 140 passengers, five of whom were transported to a nearby hospital for minor injuries possibly including smoke inhalation.

Brandon Cox said he had to jump from the wing, as did many other passengers, to escape the plane, as a crew member screamed, "Move away from the aircraft".

Video has emerged showing passengers racing to get off a Southwest Airlines flight plane which had made an emergency landing in Albuquerque Sunday night after an electrical fire caused smoke to fill a cabin. This is not the time to record! Looking back through my videos and it just doesn't seem real. Passengers were carefully removed from the flight and driven to the terminal via transport buses.

But he stresses that the plane's crew was very helpful in trying to keep passengers calm.

According to ABC affiliate KOAT, the people onboard the plane described the experience as scary.

The flight was headed to Dallas Love Field when the incident happened.

A Dallas police officer who was on board the flight praised the airline's handling of the situation.

Emergency services including the Albuquerque Fire Department, the Kirtland Air Force Fire Department and paramedics waited on the Albuquerque International Sunport runway as the plane landed.

Passengers said they could feel heat from the vents shortly before the plane made its emergency landing. In this photo, a Southwest Airlines jet passes two ATA Airlines jets sitting on the tarmac at Midway Airport in Chicago, Illinois, April 3, 2008.
