In the end … No Problem Mon … Thankfully!

An American Airlines Flight 331 from Miami to Jamaica slid off the runway and crashed upon landing in Jamaica.  44 people were injured and 4 seriously; however, according to all reports there were no deaths. Thank God!

An American Airlines flight from Miami with more than 150 aboard overshot a runway and skidded to the edge of the Caribbean Sea, injuring more than 40 people, officials said.

Flight 331 lurched down the runway of Norman Manley International Airport in the Jamaican capital Tuesday night. Crews evacuated the passengers, who had to walk along a beach in the rain to board buses to reach the terminal.

Some 44 people were taken to nearby hospitals with broken bones and back pains, Information Minister Daryl Vaz told The Associated Press.
