Plane dangles off cliff after skidding off runway in Turkey

A passenger jet carrying 162 people got stuck on a cliff's edge moments after skidding off a runway early Sunday at Turkey's Trabzon Airport.

Shocking footage from inside the plane just moments after the crash shows passengers evacuating as women and children are heard crying out in fear. If it had slid any further along the slope, the plane would have likely plunged into the Black Sea in the Turkish province of Trabzon.

Pegasus said in a statement the aircraft had been successfully evacuated and no injuries were reported.

Trabzon Gov. Yucel Yavuz said that investigators were trying to determine why the plane had left the runway.
