Dozens of people were injured Saturday when a plane originating out of John F. Kennedy Airport crashed in Guyana.
A total of 140 people were onboard Caribbean Airlines Flight 523 when officials say it overshot the runway in rainy weather and broke into two parts around 1 a.m. local time.
The country's president says the plane barely missed a 200-foot ravine that could have resulted in dozens of deaths.
About a hundred passengers received medical attention at the scene.
Four people who suffered more serious injuries were taken to a nearby hospital.
The flight left JFK at 5 p.m. Friday and made a stop in Trinidad before heading to Guyana.
