Passengers on board a Sunwing flight from Mexico to Canada experienced a rough landing in Toronto when a tire on the plane blew out.

The airline says all passengers and crew safely disembarked the plane that landed at Toronto Pearson International Airport around 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Sunwing says airport teams inspected the plane and found there was a hydraulic leak from the landing gear.

The company says the flight was operated by Swift Air.

Passenger Adi Jhamb says he was returning from his honeymoon in Cancun and the flight was perfect until the plane started shaking violently as it landed.

He says it was the roughest landing he's ever experienced.
