Another Boeing 737 flight with 143 people on board has slid off a runway and landed in a shallow river in Jacksonville, Florida, leaving 21 persons injured.
The incident occurred on Friday while the passenger plane was attempting to land at a military base during a heavy thunderstorm.
It was learned that there were no records of fatalities or critical injuries.
“The plane, a chartered Boeing 737-800 arrived from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in Cuba with 136 passengers and seven crew members, but it crashed into the St Johns River at the end of the runway at Naval Air Station Jacksonville at about 9:40 pm local time,” Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office tweeted.
“The plane was not submerged. Every person is alive and accounted for.”
After the Sheriff’s tweet, two images of the plane were shown, bearing the logo of Miami Air International, resting in shallow water without damage.
