JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - Police say a Lion Air plane with more than 100 passengers has skidded off the end of the runway into the sea on the Indonesian resort island of Bali. There was no immediate word on casualties.
Bali's Police Chief told local Indonesia channel TV One on Saturday that passengers and crew were being evacuated and taken to the airport terminal for treatment.
The cause of the accident remains unclear, but authorities say the plane originated in the city of Bandung and was landing in Bali.
A photo on TV One shows the plane sitting on top of the water.
