New video has surfaced from inside the Southwest 737 airplane the moment the nose gear collapsed on landing into LaGuardia Airport on Monday. Check out this wild new footage from a passenger on board:

Sixteen people suffered minor injuries when the flight made the hard landing and skidded off the runway, according to the Associated Press.

The NTSB is still investigating the incident, but it believes the airplane touched down on the front nose wheel before the sturdier main landing gear in back touched down, causing the collapse.

Another video from inside that same flight showed the same chaos:

What a mess.
