Plane Carrying 142 People Crashes Into A RIVER In Florida

Fire and Rescue crews rushed to Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida, on Friday night after a military charter plane carrying 143 people skidded off the runway and plunged into water.

The Miami Air Boeing 737 was returning from Guantanamo Bay when it ended up in St. Johns River following the botched landing, which occurred shortly after 9.30pm. 

The plane was not fully submerged in the water, and all passengers were evacuated safely.

Two people were treated for minor injuries, according to CBS.
