TAM A320 skids off runway in rain

at Sao Paulo's domestic airport.

Prayers for survivors (it's possible, though unlikely at this stage. Remember the Air France A340 in Toronto in 2005? Granted, the plane didn't strike a building, or, as seems to have occurred here, a gas station!) and for those who died.

It's not looking good really: CNN

Discussion, speculation, information at the airliners.net forum thread. (Where there's mention of an ATR skidding off this same runway yesterday. Obviously with less disastrous consequences).
