The plane came from the Dominican Republic with 130 passengers and 10 crew members. Fortunately, there were no seriously injured people, but there were quite a few witnesses who shared their experience both on social networks and to the media present.

People held on to their seats to avoid bumping into each other.

The plane slid down the runway until it came to a stop, as the landing gear had been damaged and there was no way to stop it. The site was filled with black smoke, but airport staff responded promptly to safeguard passengers.

In addition to black smoke, passengers said the plane shook, windows were smashed and one of the wings caught fire.

I was very scared.
