NEW YORK - LaGuardia Airport has fully reopened after a Southwest Airlines jet took a hard landing on the runway Monday night.
Officials say the nose of the plane hit the ground upon impact and was sent skidding along the tarmac before coming to a stop.
Chopper 12 was overhead afterward while crews worked to clear the runway.
There were 149 people on board the flight from Nashville. Ten passengers were treated at the scene and six were taken to a hospital with minor injuries ranging from bruises to anxiety attacks. Six crew members were also taken to the hospital for observation.
The landing temporarily shut down the airport and created delays. The incident remains under investigation.
