Southwest Airlines says eight people have been hurt when a jet's front landing gear collapsed as it arrived at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

The Dallas-based airline says in a statement that initial information indicated five passengers and three flight attendants have reported injuries in the landing Monday evening.

There were 150 people aboard the flight from Nashville, Tenn.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the nose gear collapsed just after the plane landed Monday.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says four people suffered anxiety attacks. 

The FAA says the Flight 345 landed at 5:45 p.m. safely came to a stop on the tarmac.

The nose of the plane could be seen on the ground. The plane was surrounded with emergency vehicles.

The airport was temporarily closed, but one of two runways was operating shortly after 7 p.m.
