NEW YORK (AP) - Southwest Airlines says some people have been hurt when a jet's front landing gear collapsed as it arrived at New York's LaGuardia Airport.
An official with the Port Authorities of New York and New Jersey says 10 passengers were treated at the scene, with six being taken to a hospital with minor injuries. A few suffered anxiety attacks.
There were 150 people aboard the flight from Nashville, Tenn.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the nose gear collapsed just after the plane landed Monday.
The FAA says the Flight 345 landed at 5:45 p.m. safely came to a stop on the tarmac. The nose of the plane could be seen on the ground. The plane was surrounded with emergency vehicles.
