NBC News:

A runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport was reopened Tuesday after a disabled Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 skidded to a hard landing Monday evening as its front landing gear collapsed, authorities said.

The Port Authority said crews with cranes lifted the jet from the runway onto a flatbed truck. Officials announced on Tuesday morning that the runway had been reopened.

At least 10 people of the 149 on board the flight from Nashville, Tenn., suffered minor injuries in the incident.

The jet came to a stop on Runway 4 at 5:45 p.m. ET, said Thomas Bosco, the airport's general manager and acting aviation director for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Four others refused treatment, he said.
