While grateful to have escaped injury, Bedessee said he was still processing the close call hours later.

"I am all safe, but shaking", he wrote in a Facebook post. I tried to sleep, but I couldn't do it.

It says the Boeing 757 aircraft with 118 adults and two infants on board was forced to return to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport minutes after departing for Canada because of technical difficulties and overran the airstrip.

One of the aircraft's turbines is seen badly damaged after it apparently hit the barrier. "And then the engine actually rotated 90 degrees the other direction".

Pictures showed the plane had ground to a halt in the sand just short of a steep incline.
