ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: U.S. Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence on Friday (Oct. 28) recounetd the moments when his plane skidded off the runway after landing in the rain at New York City's LaGuardia Airport the night before. No one was injured in the incident which occurred less than two weeks before the U.S. presidential election, crucial campaign days for Pence and running mate Donald Trump. Pence hit the campaign trail again on Friday. "It was about ten seconds of uncertainy as we landed," the Indiana governor said on CBS This Morning. The Boeing 737 was coming in for a landing and went off the runway at about 7:40 p.m. local time (2340 GMT). The plane was stopped by a crushable type of concrete runway that arrested the aircraft's movement, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters said. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board said they will investigate the cause of the incident. Trump called his running mate before a rally in Geneva, Ohio.
