Former Grambling State football player and current New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell was not injured when a Delta Airlines flight he was on slid off a runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday.
Delta Airlines Flight 1086, arriving from Atlanta, crashed through a fence upon landing, according to reports.
Donnell and the other 148 passengers on the plane were unharmed.
“I’m blessed to be safe and sound after our plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport today,” Donnell said. “I feel fine physically and hopefully all the other passengers did not have any significant injuries. We were all shocked and alarmed when the plane started to skid, but most importantly, as far as I know, all of the passengers and flight crew were able to exit the plane safely.”
Donnell's agent confirms he's fine and off the plane. He's been posting pictures and videos from the snowy runway on his Instagram account.
