Narrative:
Flight AA-924 declared emergency after one of the engines failed during departure. A passenger reported, that she saw one engine on fire a few minutes into the flight, followed by an almost immediate announcement by the flight crew, that they'd be returning to Medellin. The landing was very rough, the crew used maximum braking according to their announcements. The stairs arrived only two hours after the landing.
