NEW YORK (AP) — A Delta plane has skidded off a runway while landing at LaGuardia Airport, and it appears the nose of the jet is resting against a fence.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the MD-80 went off the runway at around 11:10 a.m. Thursday.

The Fire Department of New York says no injuries have been reported.

Photos show the plane in the snow, with its nose appearing to touch a fence.

Pentangelo says the plane is apparently leaking fuel.

It isn’t clear how many people were on board. Fox News reported the flight departed from Atlanta.
