An Air Canada Embraer ERJ-175, registration C-FEJP performing flight AC-753 from New York La Guardia,NY (USA) to Montreal,QC (Canada), was climbing through 15,000 feet out of La Guardia Airport when the right hand engine (CF34) automatically shut down together with N1, N2 and Engine fail indications. The crew did not attempt a re-light due to the automatic shut down but secured the engine and returned to La Guardia Airport for a safe landing on runway 22 about 35 minutes after departure and stopped on the adjacent taxiway for an inspection by emergency services.

The Canadian TSB reported emergency services did not find anything unusual and the aircraft taxied to the apron where the crew inspected the aircraft and found shards of metal in the tail section of the engine.

A replacement Embraer ERJ-175 registration C-FEKJ reached Montreal with a delay of 3 hours.
