Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence's plane slid off the runway at New York's LaGuardia airport tonight. The incident happened during a landing in inclement weather conditions, with heavy winds and rain.

Emergency crews were called to the scene. No injuries were reported.

Around 30-40 people were on the plane, including the Indiana Governor, his Secret Service detail, and a group of journalists. The chartered plane, a Boeing 737-700, made a hard landing and went through a fence, according to FDNY.

Pence was due to attend a fundraiser at Trump Tower, though reports suggest that Pence will no longer attend and the event will be postponed.
