"Why aren't the masks dropping down?,'" he said.
CBS Denver reported that an airport spokesperson said one passenger was transferred to the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and others were injured during the evacuation, but none of those injuries were serious.
A Delta representative told Business Insider that the smoke resulted from hydraulic fluid dripping on the auxiliary power unit.
"She yelled, 'evacuate the plane, ' and seconds later, the doors popped open".
A statement from Delta said that there may be some minor injuries including smoke inhalation, but that there was no fire seen aboard the flight. "We all jumped down the slide and got out of there as fast as we could".
A representative from Delta Airlines provided more insight Wednesday after a flight from Detroit filled with smoke upon landing Tuesday night at Denver International Airport.
"Airport response vehicles met the aircraft out of an abundance of caution and customers were transported to the terminal via buses", Delta stated.
Delta Air Lines flight 1854 with scheduled service from Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) to Denver International Airport (DEN) evacuated shortly after landing due to smoke filling the cabin. It said there were "no flames" during the incident, which led to 146 passengers scrambling onto the wing and evacuating from the plane on inflatable slides.
When smoke initially began filling the cabin, the flight crew attempted to keep the passengers calm, but in the end they had to activate the emergency evacuation procedure. The airport resumed normal operations soon after.
Tom Weaver, a passenger said, "I was kind of shocked".
