KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A plane full of passengers had to make an emergency landing in Wichita Sunday night.

Southwest flight #50  was headed to KCI from Dallas, but it had to make an emergency landing in Wichita due to turbulence.

A passenger onboard sent FOX 4  pictures that show the oxygen masks deployed during the emergency landing. Southwest officials say the masks deployed because of a slow altitude increase and not from rapid depressurization.

"Actually it was a little worrisome," passenger Christina Trent said.  "I was tired and so I kept falling asleep, but every noise and everybody, I swear every passenger who was on the plane before that with me, we all reacted to it differently than we had before."

The passengers arrived safely at KCI around 3:30 a.m., on Monday.

"I am pretty spiritual," passenger David Rorie said. "Definitely said a prayer or two or maybe three. So you know and thank God we made it through okay."
