HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla., May 24 (UPI) -- Officials with a southern Florida airport said the main cabin door fell from a plane and landed on a golf course shortly after takeoff.

The officials said the jet took off Wednesday from the Opa-Locka Executive Airport and soon lost its main cabin door, which plunged to the golf course near the Westin Diplomat Hotel & Spa in Hallandale Beach, WSVN-TV, Miami, reported Thursday.

None of the jets passengers was injured and the plane landed safely a few minutes after losing the door at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Golf course officials said there was no one in the door's path, as the course had been closed for the day for maintenance.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.
