Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was On Evacuated United Flight

United States Supreme Court(WASHINGTON) -- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was evacuated from a flight at Washington Dulles International Airport in Chantilly, Va., Wednesday, according to a Supreme Court spokesman.

The 78-year-old justice and cancer survivor slid down the emergency slide with other passengers when United flight 586, a Boeing 757, experienced an engine problem and the pilot evacuated the plane.

A spokesperson for the airport told ABC News that emergency personnel did not find any fire upon arrival at the plane and no foam was deployed to douse flames.

There have not been any reports of injuries in the evacuation.
