At least three people died and 179 were injured after a passenger plane skidded off the runway at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport on Wednesday, Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca reported. 

The accident took place around 6:30 p.m. local time (1530 UTC). The passenger plane, a Boeing 737, split into three pieces and veered onto a patch of grass next to the runway, in what Transport Minister Mehmet Cahit Turhan called a “rough landing.” 

One of aircraft’s wings also caught fire, but the blaze was later extinguished. Passengers had to exit through cracks in the smashed plane.
