Air India aircraft veers off taxiway, rolled into drain at Kochi airport, passengers safe
All 102 passengers were evacuated safely from the Abu Dhabi-Kochi flight.
NDTV quoted airport sources as saying that the plane took a turn too soon - about 90 metres before it was supposed to - while approaching the parking bay and went off track. Images showed a wheel of the Boeing 737-800 aircraft stuck in what appeared to be a drain.
"All passengers were evacuated through ladder. All are safe. No casualties," a Cochin International Airport spokesperson has been quoted as saying.
