A passenger jet skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport and crashed into a fence as it tried to land amid a blinding wintry mix Thursday morning, Port Authority officials tell NBC 4 New York.
One hundred and twenty-five passengers and five crew members were on the Delta plane, an MD-88 headed to New York from Atlanta, Georgia, when it slid off the runway around 11 a.m., authorities said. No injuries were reported, the Port Authority said, and all LaGuardia runways were shut down.
It's not everyday a plane has a crash landing and we get to see a short video clip captured by a professional NFL football player.
