A video of Southwest Flight 345 landing violently at New York’s LaGuardia Airport on Monday, has surfaced showing sparks, and skidding along the runway.

As many as 10 people have been injured.

According to NBC New York, passengers on the Southwest Airlines flight from Nashville, Tenn. evacuated the plane on emergency chutes just after the landing. The plane came to a stop in a grassy area on runway 4 after the nose gear collapsed, officials said.

The FAA said the flight “reported possible front landing gear issues before landing.” NBC New York said the plane was carrying 149 passengers and crew, and there may have been an additional non-ticketed child on a passenger’s lap, putting the total number of people on board at 150.
