A plane’s nosegear slid off a runway after landing safely at O’Hare International Airport Wednesday morning.

According to FOX News:

The front nose gear of a plane skidded off the runway at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport Wednesday as heavy rain continues to drench the area.

American Eagle Flight 4332 from New Orleans landed safely and was headed to a gate at the airport when the nose of the plane skidded into the grass, Fox 32 reports.

Speaking to media about the O’Hare plane skids accident, American spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan says Flight 4332 from New Orleans “landed normally and safely,” but that the plane’s front-end nose gear rolled onto the grass as it began to taxi.

No one was injured, but buses were sent out to shuttle passengers on the plane back to the terminal.

Departing flights at O’Hare were delayed 16 to 30 minutes around the time of the incident, according to Flightstats.com.

The plane is an Embraer E175.
