Plane skids off runway in Colombia

In Colombia, a passenger plane skidded off a wet runway into the Caribbean Sea. The crash caused minor injuries, with no one being hurt seriously.

The Brazilian-made Embraer-190 plane was carrying 54 people.

After landing it skidded along the wet tarmac and slid halfway into the water.

Colombia is to considering building a new airport in the resort town of Santa Marta, away from the coast.
