NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — John F. Kennedy Airport was closed for about two hours Sunday morning after a plane skidded off an icy runway into a snow bank.
Delta Connection Flight 4100, which was operated by Endeavor Air and carrying 35 people, had just landed from Toronto around 8 a.m. Sunday and had turned onto a taxiway when the incident occurred, Port Authority officials said. No injuries were reported.
As CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported Sunday night, cellphone photos showed emergency crews trying to clear a path for the plane moments after it skidded off the runway.
“It could have been worse, a much worse scenario,” Jordan Houlton told reporters after he emerged from the plane.
