    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- An American Airlines flight makes an emergency stop in Little Rock after the cold weather caused a water pipe to burst onboard.

    A passenger on a flight from Dallas to Baltimore says his flight was 30,000 feet in the air when the pilot informed them the cold weather caused the pipes to burst, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing at the Clinton National Airport.

    Shane Carter, with the Little Rock Airport, confirmed American Airlines flight 1106 made an emergency landing at 4:15 p.m. with 147 passengers on board.

    "The airline has conducted its review and made its repairs and passengers are boarding to resume their flight," Carter said.

    Dan Pyryt "All the sudden there was a loud noise in the back of the plane," says passenger Dan Pyryt. "There was water into the cabin, there were passengers that were soaked. An announcement was made saying we are making an emergency landing in Little Rock, that a water pipe had burst, it had been frozen."

    I don't get this. The temperature at 30K feet is always very cold. Or perhaps some crack in the pipe already existed and was only noticed or got worse later?

    My thought exactly...it's always 40 below at 30,000 feet!
