(AP) CHANTILLY, Va. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is 78 and has battled cancer, was forced to slide down an emergency chute to evacuate a flight at Dulles International Airport on Wednesday, a court spokeswoman said.

Ginsburg was on her way from Washington to San Francisco and was not injured, said Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe Estrada.

A pilot noticed a problem with the engine on the United Airlines Flight 586 and ordered 179 passengers and six crew members to exit, said airport spokeswoman Kimberly Gibbs.

Gibbs says three people suffered minor injuries during the evacuation, two of whom refused treatment, and one was taken to a hospital.

One passenger, Jodi Gersh, director of social media for the Gannett media company, described panic on her Twitter feed as the plane was forced to evacuate.

"My plane just had an emergency evacuation — down the slides. I am shaking. I don't know why. People were screaming."

Later, she posted, "Attendants opened rear door to see where smoke was coming from. They then started very loudly yelling 'everyone get out.' Very scary."

United Airlines Flight 586 deployed emergency chutes and was evacuated at Dulles International Airport on Wednesday after engine problems caused some smoke in the cabin.

Airport spokeswoman Kimberly Gibbs says the plane never got off the ground.

"United flight 586 was backing away from the gate when the pilot noticed something was wrong with the engine and decided to evacuate the plane," says Gibbs.

Passengers used the emergency chutes to evacuate the plane, Gibbs says, and there were reports of three minor injuries. One person was transported to the hospital.

A tweet from Susannah Fox, a passenger aboard the Boeing 757 aircraft, said, "Plane's electrics not working when we boarded. While taxiing to runway all went dark."

Hey, Justice Ginsburg is 78 years old and a victim of cancer, I imagine this was a scary experience for her.
