(CNN) — A plane carrying Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence skidded off a runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday night during landing. There were no reported injuries.

Rescue crews were responding to the scene.

“We could feel the plane moving, and it was just not a natural landing that you experience,” CNN’s Elizabeth Landers, who was on the plane, told CNN’s Erin Burnett on “OutFront.”

Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s campaign, said the businessman called Pence shortly after the incident, adding that Trump “is very glad everyone onboard the plane is safe.”
