A plane skidded off a runway in Brazil after landing in wet conditions this week in a precarious incident that was caught on camera. 

The cloudy and damp conditions were obvious in the footage as LATAM Airlines flight LA3300 arrived Wednesday morning around 9:20 a.m. at the Florianopolis-Hercilio Luz International Airport after departing from the Sao Paulo-Guarulhos Airport, reported Viral Press. 

The Airbus 321 could be seen in the video recording pitching sideways and skidding to the left of the runway toward a grassy area as its reverse thrusters reportedly were activated.

Passengers on board could apparently be heard screaming in alarm as the right side of the plane crashed through part of the hard shoulder on the runway, trapping one of the landing wheels in the pavement. 

The material used along the runway’s shoulders is reportedly softer than the runway strip. 

The plane was able to halt its course after the front wheel crossed over onto the grassy areas lining the runway.

Emergency services were called and responded to the incident.
