A  DHL cargo plane carrying mail and packages broke in two during an emergency landing in Costa Rica,  Per Second News gathered.

The aircraft was bound for Guatemala when its hydraulic system failed, according to Luis Munoz, deputy director of Costa Rica’s civil aviation authority.

The incident caused the temporary closure of the international airport.

DHL said the crew was unharmed but revealed that one member was undergoing a medical review as a precaution.

The Boeing 757-200  jet skidded off the runway, separating its tail, aviation authorities said.

Smoke emerged from the bright yellow plane as it ground to a halt after the pilot requested permission to make an emergency landing shortly after take-off, he said.
