Transcript for Instant Index: Former President George W. Bush Gets a Partial Knee Replacement
A Monday night and that white knuckle moment for 313 people on board a flight bound for India. 30 minutes after liftoff from Newark airport, an engine overheated, setting off alarms. The quick thinking pilot shut down the engine and turned the plane around but not before a woman on the ground snapped this picture. The force of the landing blowing out three of the plane's 12 tires. No one was injured. Former president George W. Bush recuperating tonight.
