DHL 757 skids off runway in San Jose, Costa Rica

They landed fine but the airplane skidded off the runway at low speed, doing major damage including the tail separating from the aircraft. Both pilots are reported to be uninjured. Video of the landing:

I would hazard a guess that it didn't feel particularly low speed on the aircraft! Good to know crew are OK.
