Engine failure is not what you want to experience at 31,000 feet, but that's what happened to actress Jennifer Lawrence on Saturday—and then it got worse. The 26-year-old had departed Louisville, Ky., on a private plane with two pilots and one other passenger when the engine issue occurred.

A rep for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority tells the Buffalo News a Beechcraft 400 Beechjet made an emergency landing in Buffalo at 1:15pm due to the left-engine issue. E! reports that while making the landing, the other engine gave out, but the plane was able to land without incident. A rep for Lawrence confirms to USA Today that she was uninjured.
