"We were straight and all of a sudden we started fishtailing", SC passenger Steve Chisholm, who was traveling to Boston for Christmas day, told WCVB. "And yeah it started getting rough", Steve Chisholm, of SC, who was traveling to Boston on Christmas Day, told ABC affiliate WCVB. No one was hurt, and all the passengers were evacuated via airstairs.

"You could tell when we hit ice because we felt the plane spinning around like it was making a sharp turn", Corbett says. "We just need a tow". Passengers applauded the pilot after the plane came to a stop.

A spokesperson for Jet Blue put out a statement on Twitter which read ‘JetBlue flight 50 from Savannah to Boston went off a taxiway shortly after landing at approximately 7:15pm. Firefighters are seen above boarding the aircraft after it skidded off
