Rough plane landing injures at least 10 in Pakistan (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
A total of 112 passengers and 7 crewmembers suffered a rough landing on board a Shaheen Air Boeing 737.
You can see in the photos that the plane skidded off the landing strip, its parts torn off and the body of the plane damaged. The escape slides inflated, allowing passengers to exit from both sides of the plane at both ends. Emergency exits in the middle of the plane also appear to open.
