There appear to be no life-threatening injuries among the 156 people aboard an American Airlines Boeing 737 that left the runway on landing at Kingston, Jamaica, late Tuesday. Reports say 90 people had bumps, bruises and broken bones. Three remain in hospital. The flight from Washington, D.C., via Miami was trying to land in heavy rain and turbulence. It left the runway, went through a sand bank and stopped a few feet from the Caribbean. FAA and NTSB investigators were on the scene by Wednesday afternoon.
