Runways reopen after plane collapse

A jet whose nose gear collapsed after landing at a New York airport has been removed from the runway.

LaGuardia Airport said a crane loaded the plane onto a flatbed truck and it was taken to a hangar allowing both the airport's runways to be put back in service.

The nose gear on the Southwest Airlines plane collapsed when the flight coming from Nashville landed, injuring 10 passengers, six of whom needed hospital treatment.

There were 150 people on board.
