A plane skidded off a runway in Brazil after landing in wet conditions this week in a precarious incident that was caught on camera.
The cloudy and damp conditions were obvious in the footage as LATAM Airlines Flight LA3300 arrived Wednesday around 9:20 a.m. at the Florianopolis-Hercilio Luz International Airport after departing from the Sao Paulo-Guarulhos Airport, reported Viral Press.
The Airbus 321 could be seen in the video recording pitching sideways and skidding to the left of the runway toward a grassy area as its reverse thrusters reportedly were activated.

Passengers were able to exit the plane by mobile staircases.
LATAM Airlines Brazil, which is one of Latin America’s leading airlines, reportedly said in a statement, “We reinforce that all 172 passengers and 7 crew members of flight LA3300 were disembarked safely and released after the evaluation of the medical team.”
