MIAMI (AP) — American Airlines says a bird got caught in the engine of a Chicago-to-Miami flight but that the passenger jet landed safely.

Airline spokesman Matt Miller said late Thursday that the American flight "took a bird strike just prior to landing" at Miami International Airport.

He said an emergency landing was declared on Flight 1388 from Chicago O'Hare International Airport as a precaution and that the Boeing 737 landed safely Thursday evening. The flight had 145 people on board.

In 2009, Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger safely landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in New York after striking a flock of geese.
