NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Passengers are recalling the tense moments aboard Delta Flight 1086 as it skidded and crashed through a fence during landing at LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning.
In the moments before the plane slammed into the fence, passengers described it wobbling and leaning side to side as it skidded forward, CBS2’s Sonia Rincon reported.
There were 127 passengers and five crew members on the plane and all were evacuated safely, authorities said. Twenty-four people suffered non-life threatening injuries and three people were taken to the hospital, according to the FDNY.
Many passengers were relieved it wasn’t worse.
