A Delta flight out of Detroit made an emergency landing at Reagan National Airport today after having air pressure problems.

There were 152 passengers and six crew members on Flight 2244 from Detroit to D.C. when it encountered pressurization problems and made a sharp descent from a height of 39,000 feet.

According to a Delta spokesperson, the plane "declared an emergency and descended to 10,000 feet, continued to DCA, landed without incident, taxied to the gate, and the passengers were offloaded as usual without incident."

No injuries were reported.
