All flights at LaGuardia Airport are canceled until at least 7 p.m. ET, the airport announced. The move was made after a Delta Airlines plane skidded off the runway and crashed into a fence.
None of the 125 passengers on board the plane were injured in the incident, say local media reports.
The passengers were shuttled off the plane. The airport later announced there is will be flight delays.
Passengers carrying their bags and bundled up in heavy coats and scarves slid down an inflated chute to deplane and made their way onto a taxiway piled with several inches of snow.
The Delta flight, carrying 125 passengers and five crew members, veered off the runaway at around 11:10 a.m., authorities said. Emergency responders are still assessing people, but any injuries appear to be minor, the Fire Department of New York said.
Images show the plane resting in the snow, and its right wing appears to have been sheared off. Video shows passengers trudging through the snow in an orderly line after climbing off the plane.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said the passengers are deplaning down inflated aircraft sides and are being bused to a terminal. It said the airline will work with authorities to figure out what caused the crash.
Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said the plane is apparently leaking fuel.
Another Port Authority spokesman, Steve Coleman, said both the airport’s runways are closed until further notice. He said everyone on the plane has now disembarked.
