A terrifying video shows the moment an American Airlines plane skidded off a snowy runway at the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago as the Arctic blast grounds more than 800 flights in the Midwest.

None of the 38 passengers and three crew members aboard the Envoy Air flight from Greensboro, North Carolina, were hurt when the plane slid off the runway at about 7.45am Monday morning amid the quick-moving storm system that is expected to affect at least 60 million people across the US.

In the video, flight 4125 is seen sliding off the runway shortly after the plane landed. The passenger who recorded the video is heard in the background saying ‘oh sh*t’ once he realized the plane was heading off the runway.

‘We’re sliding! We’re sliding!’ another passenger yells in the background shortly before the plane’s wing hit the ground, bringing the aircraft to a stop.

The city’s aviation department says 803 flights in and out of the airport have been canceled since the incident.
