France’s airport was closed indefinitely after a cargo plane landed too far and its front ended up in a lake.
The Boeing 737 flew over the runway at 3:00 AM local time (or 4:00 PM UK time) Saturday.
The West Atlantic flight landed in water, grass, and reeds at Montpellier Airport. This airport serves the country’s Mediterranean coast.
Sixty firefighters were dispatched to the scene, located approximately four miles from Paris.
The jet contained air freight and three people were all safely rescued.
The airport was closed to passengers and cargo flights, according to authorities until the plane is moved.
The incident is under investigation.
