Posted Sunday, June 15th 2014 @ 3pm

NEW YORK (AP) - JetBlue says a Florida-to-Connecticut flight has been diverted to New York City after a mechanical warning light went on. The plane landed safely, and no one was injured.
 
       Flight 1142 was headed Sunday from West Palm Beach, Florida, to Hartford, Connecticut, with 84 people aboard when the indicator appeared around 1:15 p.m. An airline spokesman didn't have immediate information on exactly what the warning light signaled.
 
       JetBlue Airways Corp. says the pilot decided to land at New York's Kennedy Airport ``in an abundance of caution.''
 
       Airport operator the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the plane taxied to a gate without any problems. It was parked by 1:27 p.m.
 
       Maintenance workers are checking out the plane. Passengers are to be taken to Hartford on another aircraft.
