CHICAGO, April 20 (UPI) -- A Southwest Airlines jetliner landed safely in Chicago Saturday after being diverted because of a possible mechanical problem, officials said.

Southwest Flight 2187 from Charlotte, N.C., was to have landed at Chicago's Midway International Airport but instead was sent to O'Hare International Airport, the Chicago Tribune and WGN-TV reported.

A Department of Aviation spokeswoman said the plane landed without incident shortly after 6 p.m. CDT.

Southwest representative Chris Mainz attributed the diversion to a faulty indication light.

Mainz said the passengers were shuttled to Midway.
