Plane skids off runway and dangles over a cliff

14 January 2018

A passenger jet slid off the runway and became stuck in mud after landing at an global airport in the Black Sea province of Trabzon late Saturday, state-run news agency Anadolu reported. No passengers or crew were hurt, Turkish media reported on Sunday. Pictures from the site showed the plane's nose close to the water's edge.

Some 162 passengers and six crew members were on board the Boeing 737-800, which had departed the Turkish capital Ankara.

Although India's bowlers gave a good account of themselves, the batting line-up flattered to deceive once again on a lively track. In the first hour of the Test, India were reduced to asking Pandya to hide the ball well outside off, which he did as ordered.

Shocking footage from inside the plane just moments after the crash shows passengers evacuating as women and children are heard crying out in fear. No one was injured or killed in the landing, reports said. "There was panic; people shouting, screaming", Fatma Gordu, who was on board of the flight, told state-run news agency Anadolu, quoted in AFP.

The airport was temporarily shut down until Sunday morning as firefighters cooled down the plane and authorities investigated the accident, whose cause remains unclear.
