N.Y. Giants' Larry Donnell 'blessed to be safe' after plane skids off runway

New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell survived a scary incident Thursday morning as a passenger on the Delta Air Lines plane that skidded off a runway in snow at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

"I'm blessed to be safe and sound after our plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport today," Donnell said in a statement. "I feel fine physically and hopefully all the other passengers did not have any significant injuries. We were all shocked and alarmed when the plane started to skid, but most importantly, as far as I know, all of the passengers and flight crew were able to exit the plane safely."

Donnell posted a photo and video of the incident's aftermath to his Instagram account.
