An Air Canada aircraft crash landed in Halifax yesterday, injuring 23 passengers.
The incident happened at Halifax Stanfield International airport in Nova Scotia as flight AC624 from Toronto arrived during a snowstorm at approximately 00:43 local time (04:43 GMT)
The plane was carrying 133 passengers and 5 crew members.
According to reports, the aircraft landed 1,100 feet short of the runway after hitting an antenna array, shearing the main landing gear off and sliding on to the runway for another 330 metres before coming to a stop.
In a statement the airline said all but one of the 23 people taken to hospital with minor injuries have now been released.
A spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada said investigators have yet to discover the cause of the accident.
A statement from Air Canada said: "We are greatly relieved that no one was critically injured. Yet, we fully appreciate this has been a very unsettling experience for our customers and their families, as well as our employees, and we are focused on caring for all those affected.
"We will also fully cooperate with the Transportation Safety Board as it begins an investigation to determine the cause."
