From the New York Daily News:

Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez got a horrible scare yesterday when a private jet he was aboard skidded off a runway outside Los Angeles - just two days after the crash of Cory Lidle's doomed plane.

A-Rod's twin-engine jet was brought to an abrupt halt by a 200-foot-long stretch of pavement injected with air bubbles designed to collapse under the weight of an out-of-control aircraft, authorities said. ...

"I spoke to Alex. He's fine," the third basemen's agent Scott Boras said.
