A passenger jet was forced to do an emergency landing to Manchester when a Samsung tablet began emitting smoke after overheating.

A Delta flight from Detroit going to Amsterdam diverted to Manchester, England last Sunday because a Samsung tablet got stuck between two seats, Evening Standard reports.

"Delta flight DL138 on 25 September en route from Detroit to Amsterdam diverted to Manchester due to smoke in the cabin," the news site published. "The aircraft landed safely and Delta's maintenance team quickly found the source and the aircraft was cleared to continue its journey. The safety of passengers and crew is Delta's number one priority," from a statement released by a Delta Air Lines spokesperson.

According to a Delta official, the tablet fell in between seats when it was either reclined or returned to the normal position. The foam from the seat started smoking, and passengers began smelling a unusual odor.

After the flight diversion, safety maintenance was done in the plane, as well as replacing the affected seat. The passenger's journey began approximately 2 hours right after that.

In a statement given by Samsung to ABC News, "external factors contributed to this incident. We have reached out to Delta to investigate as the cause is yet to be determined."

Consumerist detailed, two complaints were seen in the database of Consumer Product Safety Commision's SaferProducts.gov raising a concern about overheating and burning concern with regards to Samsung Galaxy tablets and Tab 3.

In June 2014, first complaint was raised to CPSC by the owner of a Galaxy Tab 3 that the said device injured her daughter when it caught fire. The woman wrote, "My daughter, age 10 came home from school and smelled something burning in the hallway. She went to investigate around 4-4:30pm. She found her tablet charging and smoking. She immediately unplugged it from the wall. She unplugged the charger from device, the metal had melted. It burned her - she dropped it onto her bedding which in turn burned her bedding," Consumerist added.

Second instance was last June 2015, when the owner of a Galaxy Tablet said that the device's cord melted while charging which caused burning and electrocution of her daughter.
