Ive just seen on the news that a plane over ran the runway in Malaga (Southern Spain).
The plane was landing when the number 3 engine had some trouble.
Three people died and 24 are injured (the injured were mostly treathed on site) in the CN-235 aircraft which is owned by Iberia Airlines.
The plane was flying from Melilla in Morocco with 44 passengers on board.
The plane was very close to a main road which would have caused a lot more injuries and even deaths if that had happened.
The front of the plane was the worst off.
The police and other officials said that it was hard work off loading the passengers to the fairly cramped conditions and were bringing out seats to crete more space for the passengers to come out of the small escape hatches.
PS Respect to the people who died and their families.
