Fans of rapper Post Malone say they drove to an upstate New York airport as soon as they heard his private jet had blown two tires on takeoff from a small New Jersey airport and would be making an emergency landing there.

Teenager Dom Henry says he was "praying" for the rapper's safety and was hoping to see him.

Anthony DeStefano and his nephew watched the jet from a nearby hill. DeStefano says he saw the plane descend and it appeared to be a normal landing. He says the landing was a "great job by the pilot."

The jet had been headed to England and initially was diverted to Massachusetts. When it landed Post Malone thanked fans who prayed for him and dissed those who "wished death" on him on Twitter while he was in the air.
