A Boeing 737 commercial jet with 136 people on board slid into the St. Johns River near Jacksonville, Florida after landing on Friday, a spokesman for Naval Air Station Jacksonville said.
There were no reports of fatalities but local WOKV-TV that at least two people suffered minor injuries and that the plane was attempting to land during a heavy thunderstorm.
The flight arriving from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay went into the river at the end of the runway at about 9:40 p.m. local time, the air station said.
The mayor of Jacksonville, Lenny Curry, said on Twitter that everyone on board the flight was "alive and accounted for" but that crews were working to control jet fuel on the water. Curry said in a separate tweet that U.S. President Donald Trump had called him to offer help.
We have a commercial plane down on the river. I've been briefed by our Fire and Rescue. They are on the scene. While they work please pray.- Lenny Curry (@lennycurry) May 4, 2019
"The plane was not submerged. Every person is alive and accounted for," the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said on Twitter.
The sheriff's tweet was accompanied by two photographs showing the plane bearing the logo of Miami Air International resting in shallow water and fully intact.
A Boeing spokesman said that the company was aware of the incident and was gathering information.
