Jet Crash Lands in Guyana - All Aboard Survive

NYTimes.com: "GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — A Caribbean Airlines jet from New York overshot a rainy runway, slid through a chain-link fence and broke apart just short of a ravine here on Saturday.

Several dozen people were injured, but no one was killed among the 163 people on board, officials said.

Passengers aboard the plane, a Boeing 737-800, said they had begun to applaud the pilot’s landing in Guyana just after midnight when things went wrong."
