Nepal: Passengers escape after plane skids off runway

A group of airline passengers in Nepal had a lucky escape after their plane skidded off a runway in dense fog.

Footage shows passengers using emergency slides to exit the Airbus A330, which was left resting on its nose.

Officials at Kathmandu's Tribhuwan International Airport said the Turkish Airlines jet with 238 people on board was coming from Istanbul when the accident happened.

No one was seriously injured.
