United flight returns to Houston with engine problem


United Flight 1124 left Houston bound for Boston, but it didn't get far.

Officials said the Boeing 737 aircraft experienced a mechanical issue with an engine mid-air.

"Out of an abundance of caution, [the plane] returned to Houston, landing safely," read a statement from United.

United re-accommodated the customers, putting them on another aircraft that departed for Boston at 1pm.
