The plane came to a stop with an apparent damaged rear landing gear and a big quantity of mud on its belly and engines.

Numerous emergency vehicles surrounded the aircraft and lit it up with powerful spotlights.

About an hour after the incident, passengers were seen offloading the damaged plane on portable stairs before making their way into buses that carried them to the terminal.

Firemen and airport staff investigated the fuselage of the A320 with flashlights, combing the structure and looking for further damage.

Fire fighters were seen helping some of the passengers off the plane and climbing down temporary stairs safely to the ground. 

There was no reports of any major injuries.
