A passenger jet slid off the runway and became stuck in mud after landing at an global airport in the Black Sea province of Trabzon late Saturday, state-run news agency Anadolu reported.

As you can see in the photos, the damage is pretty extensive to the plane - but, miraculously, there were no fatalities and all passengers were successfully and safely evacuated. However, the images of the plane about to fall off into the Black Sea gives an idea just how miraculous the plane's escape has been.

Private Pegasus Airlines' 737-800 departed from late Saturday. The six-member crew, including two pilots, was also evacuated and Pegasus said there were no injuries.

A major tragedy was averted when an Air Canada plane was prevented at the last minute from landing into four aircraft on a busy taxiway at San Francisco International Airport in July 2017. The aircraft was carrying 135 passengers and crew members reporte

The airport, situated in the Turkish province of the same name, was closed for several hours afterwards but has since reopened.

One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, told Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu the crash sparked panic on board the flight. "I feel like I'm going insane when I think about it".

"We swerved all of a sudden", she said. The front was down while the plane's rear was up.
