Now to frightening moments at the end of a flight. A plane blowing out several tires on landing and partially skidding off the runway. Causing significant delays at a major airport. This morning, passengers saying they are lucky to be alive after a terrifying landing at Newark airport. Is anybody else hurt? Reporter: Multiple tires bursting united airlines plane touched down. The plane bouncing on impact. It just seemed like a really bad bouncy landing. Instead, when I saw the nose of the plane went up after the first bounce. I thought, oh, my god, he's going the take off. Reporter: The aircraft veering off the runway into a grassy area. We were in row 21, in one of the exit rows, we actually sort of thought we were going to have to help people off. Reporter: Emergency crews escorting the 166 passengers to safety. No serious injuries reported. Officials still investigating what caused the plane to skid off the runway. And the airport stopped ground operations for two hours as they had to tow that plane away. It's back up and running this morning. Definitely a frightening moment.
