It has emerged that New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell was amongst the 125 passengers on board Flight 1086 - the plane involved in the scary crash as New York's LaGuardia airport today.

Scary incident

Amidst snowy conditions the plane skidded off the snowy runway before crashing through a fence and coming to a stop atop a snowy bank. Thankfully it appears all passengers, including Donnell, are ok with no serious injuries being reported.

And Donnell was actually one of the first people to get images of the incident out to the world - filming the aftermath and posting the video onto his official Instagram account.

Video evidence

The flight, which was scheduled from Atlanta, had been attempting to land at around 11.05pm before running into trouble. Donnell's video shows the passenger's using the emergency exits on the plane's wings, the emergency services already at the scene.

As you can see from the choice words used by Donnell in the video's title, it wasn't the ideal way to land back in New York.

The player also posted a still image of the scene with the caption "plane down."

It wasn't all bad news for Donnell though with reports today also revealing that he has signed a new deal with the Giants.

As reported by New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano, the tight end got a one-year deal as part of his ERFA status - bringing with it a salary of $585,000.
