Delta Plane Skids Off The Runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport

NEW YORK (AP) — A Delta plane has skidded off a runway while landing at LaGuardia Airport and has crashed through a fence.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the MD-80 went off the runway at around 11:10 a.m. Thursday. The Fire Department of New York says no injuries have been reported.

Images show the plane resting in the snow with the nose of the jet through a chain-link fence. Passengers are getting off the plane and trudging through the snow.

Pentangelo says the plane is apparently leaking fuel.

It isn’t clear how many people were on board or where the flight had originated.
