A plane skidded off the runway of a Turkish coastal airport and ended up halfway down a steep slope into the Black Sea, causing panic among passengers.

Images show the aircraft on its belly and at an acute angle just above the water.

Pegasus Airlines confirmed in a statement Sunday there were no injuries among the 162 passengers onboard as well as two pilots and four cabin crew after they were evacuated.

Early reports suggest that the wheels dug into the frozen mud, which stopped it from falling completely into the Black Sea. Flights were suspended at Trabzon Airport for several hours after the incident before resuming again Sunday.
