This is supposed to be a happy and glorious day, but something went very wrong for a flight full of passengers traveling from Nashville to NYC's LaGuardia Airport!
From what we hear, Southwest Airlines Flight 345, a Boeing 737, crash-landed just minutes ago when the front-landing gear broke and the nose of the plane slammed into the runway!!
Ugh!! That's HORRIBLE!
We aren't sure why planes are having so much trouble landing these days, but this is so sad and scary!!
Since the unexpected accident, LaGuardia airport has been closed down while inbound flights are being rerouted.
We are hearing conflicting reports from varying sources on how many people were hurt when the plane crashed. We certainly hope they make a speedy recovery!
UPDATE: CNN now says 11 were injured in the crash.
Yikes!! We hope they all get healthy soon!
