NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell says he feels “blessed to be safe and sound” after his plane skidded off the runway and hit a fence at LaGuardia Airport on Thursday morning.
Delta Flight 1086 was coming in from Atlanta when it went off Runway 13.
Donnell was among the passengers on the plane, and he posted a photo on Instagram of the scene.
“I’m blessed to be safe and sound after our plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport today,” he said in a statement released by the Giants. “I feel fine physically and hopefully all the other passengers did not have any significant injuries. We were all shocked and alarmed when the plane started to skid, but most importantly, as far as I know, all of the passengers and flight crew were able to exit the plane safely.”
He also posted a video, with a caption that read: “Look at this s—! Knew I shoulda stayed my a– at home.”
The 26-year-old was reportedly on his way to sign a one-year tender with the team. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent.
All passengers and crew members were evacuated with no major injuries, authorities said.
