NEW YORK, N.Y. – A Delta flight arriving from Atlanta skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning.

The plane busted through a fence next to the runway at about 11:15 a.m. All flights into and out of LaGuardia have been diverted.

New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell posted a photo on Instagram of people emerging from the flight.

"I’m blessed to be safe and sound after our plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport today. I feel fine physically and hopefully all the other passengers did not have any significant injuries," Donnell said in a statement released through the Giants. "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.”

There were no serious injuries, according to CNN, though some minor injuries have been reported.

The wing of the jet may have been broken and the plane was believed to be leaking fuel onto the runway, several media outlets reported. Flights in and out of LaGuardia were suspended until at least 7 p.m. Thursday, according to reports.
