A Southwest plane slides off runway in Chicago

Southwest flight 1919 slide off the runway on Tuesday April 26th 2011 at Chicago's Midway Airport.  After it came to a stop, the plane with it's 144 passengers and crew, became stuck in the mud just off the runway.  

Heavy rains caused the incident and after a few hours the passengers were on their way.  The other bit of good news?  The nose of the airplane was pointed directly at a White Castle that was across the street.  There were no confirmed incidents of passengers taking advantage of that, but I would have.  :-)
