the thing about runway thresholds, especially in the Netherlands, they are smooth, solid land, capable of taking the weight of a short landing airliner. THe Dutch are master builders, so there was little damage to the runway and all the passengers were alive when the plane taxied to the terminal.
No harm, no foul

Threshold is different than an over run as the latter is ment to stop an aircraft which has over run a runway by crumbling due to the load of the aircraft. The threshold is the start of a runway.
