DENVER (AP) — Two passengers who were aboard a United Airlines flight that had to make an emergency landing after one of its engines blew apart in Colorado are suing the company.

In separate lawsuits filed Friday in Chicago, where United is based, the two say they have suffered personal, emotional and financial injuries following the failure of the Boeing 777′s engine in February.

Video showed the engine in flames after the plane took off from Denver.

People on the ground saw huge chunks of the aircraft drop, which just missed a home and crushed a truck.

No injuries were reported. United declined to comment on the lawsuits.
