A plane carrying 127 passengers, including Giants tight end Larry Donnell, and five crew members skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport amid snowy conditions in New York on Thursday morning.

In a statement, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Flight 1086 from Atlanta crashed into a fence at approximately 11:05 a.m. ET. All passengers and crew members were safely taken off plane, and multiple emergency rescue crews are on the scene, according to the Port Authority.

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

Donnell captured some images from the ordeal and posted them on his Instagram account.
