Delta Flight 1086 was arriving in New York from Atlanta on Thursday when the unexpected happened. The plane, carrying 125 passengers, skidded off the runway upon landing at New York’s LaGuardia airport. Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said the plane was apparently leaking fuel.
The passengers used the emergency slides to leave the aircraft. Thankfully, no one was seriously harmed however three minor injuries were reported. All of the passengers were taken by bus to a nearby Delta terminal.
“Our priority is ensuring our customers and crew member are safe,” the airlines said in a statement. “Delta will work with all authorities and stakeholders to look into what happened in this incident.”
LaGuardia Airport is now closed until 7pm.
