Miami Heat plane slides on icy runway at General Mitchell International Airport
Players are OK, team spokesman says
PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The Miami Heat's charter plane slid on an icy runway at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee upon landing Wednesday night, a team spokesman said.
The slid happened while the plane was taxiing, the Miami Heat said on Twitter. The plane never left the pavement.
A source told Local 10 News that the plane had to be towed back to safety.
The source also described the incident as "annoying" and added that everyone onboard is OK.
The Heat are in Milwaukee to close out a six-game road trip that ends on Friday.
