A Boeing 737 with more than 140 people on board overshot the runway at a U.S Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida and crashed into the St. Johns River late Friday evening.

The U.S Federal Aviation Administration told journalists that the Boeing 737-800, a military contract flight operated by Miami Air International from Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, skidded off the runway. The nose is in the mud of the river.

Twenty-one of the PASSENGERS were brought to local hospitals after the incident, but all of them were in good condition.

 

Responders were working to control jet fuel in the water, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry tweeted.
