Several 'slight injuries' in Dreamliner evacuation: police

Several people were slightly injured during the evacuation of an All Nippon Airways Dreamliner that made an emergency landing in Japan on Wednesday, police said.

"We have reports that several people were slightly injured," said a spokesman at Kagawa police, which covers the Takamatsu area in western Japan.

"We heard they sustained injuries -- minor ones such as scratches -- when they were getting out of the plane," he said.

Broadcaster NHK quoted a passenger saying he had feared the plane was going to crash as it flew over Japan's fourth largest island of Shikoku.

"I smelled something strange when the plane was going into a cruising altitude after take-off," he told the broadcaster. "I didn't see smoke."

"The plane then started descending rapidly and I thought 'this could crash'. I was surprised as there was an announcement that it was making an emergency landing at Takamatsu airport."
