Delta jet makes emergency landing at JFK airport

A Delta jet from Atlanta bound for New York's LaGuardia Airport was diverted to John F. Kennedy Airport because of a problem with its hydraulic system.



Delta Flight 886 was carrying 118 passengers from Atlanta to LaGuardia when the pilot reported the issue. 



The jet was diverted to JFK because it has longer runways. 



The plane landed safely but rolled onto a grassy area then got stuck.

 

Passengers were bused to LaGuardia. 



No one was injured.
