DENVER -- A strong gust of wind caused a Southwest Airlines plane to slide onto baggage equipment while passengers were getting off the jet at Denver International Airport on Monday.

A FOX31 viewer shared the photo with us following the incident and said that the gust caused the plane to slide.

There were no injuries and no reported damage to the plane, according to an airport spokesperson.

There was a slight delay and another plane was brought in to bring passengers to Las Vegas.
