WASHINGT0N (AP) – Republican Mike Pence says he’s grateful for the “quick action” of his pilot and first responders when his campaign plane slid off a runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
No one was injured in the incident Thursday. Pence told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he felt the plane fishtail after a hard landing.
He said, “just for a few seconds, you could feel us bouncing off. And with mud splattered up on the windows, we figured we were off the runway.”
Pence said first responders were “on the scene at LaGuardia before the aircraft even came to a halt.”
The plane was coming to New York from Fort Dodge, Iowa.
