A passenger plane has dumped fuel over a school playground as it made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport.
At least 17 children and nine adults are being treated for skin irritation and breathing problems.
Fuel may be dumped in emergencies, but aviation rules state that air traffic controllers must warn nearby facilities that could be affected.
A Delta Airlines flight reportedly had to return to the airport after takeoff.
