A charter plane travelling from Cuba to north Florida ended up in a river at the end of a runway, said officials.

A Naval Air Station Jacksonville news release says a Boeing 737 arriving from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, crashed into the St Johns River Friday night.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office posted on Twitter that a marine unit responded to assist.

The plane was in shallow water and not submerged. Officials say everyone on the plane was alive and accounted for.

A photo posted by deputies shows a Miami Air International logo on the plane.

The company didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
