A Los Angeles bound flight from New York made an unscheduled stop in Cleveland, due to an apparent in-flight mechanical problem.

United Airlines Flight 132 from Kennedy International Airport was diverted to Cleveland around 5:42 p.m. Sunday after an electrical smell was detected in the cabin.

ABC's "Body of Proof" star Dana Delany was aboard the flight and tweeted about the incident saying, "Maybe being stranded in Cleveland is a sign that I should be on @hotnclevelandtv. @bettymwhite where are you?" and "Emergency landing on @United in Cleveland. Who's couch can I crash on?!?"

The plane landed safely and no injuries were reported following the emergency landing. Passengers were reportedly booked on a later flight.
