MIAMI — US authorities on Friday said a 1-foot-by-2-foot (30-by-60-centimeter) hole was found in the fuselage of a commercial airliner that suddenly lost cabin pressure shortly after taking off from Miami.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said oxygen masks were deployed when American Airlines Flight 1640 lost cabin pressure about 30 minutes into its flight late Tuesday. The Boeing 757 had left Miami for Boston. The plane returned safely to Miami.

Bergen says an inspection revealed a hole in the upper part of the fuselage just behind a cabin door toward the front of the plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
