Passengers were disembarked after an American Airlines flight skidded off the runway at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport due to icy conditions on Monday morning, November 11.
American Airlines told Storyful that Flight 4125, which was traveling from Greensboro, North Carolina, to Chicago, slid off the runway upon landing at around 7.45 am on Monday due to icy conditions. The airline said no injuries were reported and all 38 passengers and three crew members were transported to a terminal at O’Hare Airport safely.
Local media reported that the incident prompted a ground stop at the airport, halting all landings until around 8.30 am.
Airlines at O’Hare and Midway Airports canceled hundreds of flights on Monday as the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the state.
