Passengers of Delta flight 1086 from Atlanta are shaken up from more than just the cold weather this morning after their airplane slid off of the runway while landing.

Photos show the plane perched on an embankment off of the runway after crashing through a chain-link fence. Fortunately all 115 passengers onboard the aircraft were evacuated quickly, as it was rumored that there may have been fuel leakage caused by the crash landing. Only a few minor injuries have been reported.

“Our priority is ensuring our customers and crew member are safe,” Delta has announced in a statement. “Delta will work with all authorities and stakeholders to look into what happened in this incident.”

Passengers on the flight have been posting their experience via social media, expressing their thoughts about the scary situation.

One passenger even documented the experience with a video posted to her Instagram account, thanking God that no one was hurt and that the airplane didn’t end up in the water…
