TORONTO, March 20 (UPI) -- An Air Canada passenger plane, with one of its two turboprop engines out and hydraulic problems, made a safe emergency landing in Toronto Wednesday.

Peel police Constable Thomas Ruttan said the Bombardier Dash 8 was carrying 24 passengers when it landed at Toronto's Pearson airport about 4:30 p.m. EDT, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The landing occurred nearly 1 1/2 hours after the crew alerted emergency officials about their situation.

The CBC said the plane was operating as an Air Canada Express flight and was originally scheduled to land at the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
