A frightening moment in-flight for some British Airways passengers turns out to be a false alarm.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:

A mid-air scare for passengers heading Miami to London on British Airways Flight 206 - halfway through their journey, an announcement that couldn't have been clearer: "This is an emergency, we will shortly be making an emergency landing on water".

Cue 30 seconds of horror, before cabin crew reassured panicking passengers the message had been played by mistake.

BA now apologizing for the scare.
