Flight was coming into FCO from MAD, aircraft was an Airbus A320 with 151 pax onboard. Approx 10 people suffered "light" injuries, and were treated by medical staff at the airport. Report suggests the right-hand side wheels failed to deploy during landing, however the pilot noticed this prior to landing so he warned air traffic control ahead of time. Weather at the time was stormy, so this could also have exacerbated the skid. http://news.sky.com/story/1148039/plane-skids-off-runway-at-rome-airport
