Nearly 100 passengers deplaned via emergency chutes after a Florida-bound JetBlue flight out of Westchester County Airport had to land suddenly in South Carolina following a report of smoke in the cockpit, officials said. 

No one was hurt when JetBlue flight 913 was evacuated upon landing at Charleston International Airport around 10:30 a.m. Friday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Officials at the Charleston airport say about 97 passengers were aboard the plane, which had been headed to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Passengers were bused from the tarmac to the terminal and were to be accommodated on other flights. The FAA says its investigation is ongoing.
