Emergency crews rushed to the runway after the plane’s left-side wheel strut apparently buckled.
It was unclear if any sparks or flames occurred during the incident, but photos published by local media showed one landing gear strut bent and collapsed and what appeared to be retardant foam sprayed around it.
An airport official said the plane did not leave the runway during the mishap and there had not been any fire. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be quoted by name
The official said the passengers did not use emergency chutes to evacuate the aircraft, but rather left by the regular exits and stairways.
Airport authorities said some of the 139 passengers were treated for “nervous crisis,” but none of them or any of the five crew members were injured.
