Southwest jet skids off Chicago runway, boy dies

A Southwest Airlines jet skidded off a runway and smashed through a fence Thursday night at Chicago's Midway Airport, killing a 6-year-old boy and injuring several other people. The plane landed during heavy snow. The Federal Aviation Administration imposed a "ground stop" at the airport, which stops planes from landing there. The 90 passengers on the plane evacuated safely. FAA and National Transportation Safety Board officials are investigating the accident. Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly said there were no indications of maintenance problems with the plane, which had a service check Wednesday.
