Flight 1919 from Denver had just touched down on Runway 13 Center at 1:35pm when it slid into a mud patch at the left far end. The plane was evacuated safely and no injuries were reported, according to Southwest.
The damage to the Boeing 737-700 was not immediately known.
A Southwest 737-700 slid off a runway and onto a street during a snowstorm at Midway in 2005, killing a child in a passing car. More recently, a Southwest 737-300 suffered an inflight fuselage rupture on April 1st.
