Plane crash in the Hudson River
A friend of mine did, on his way home to NJ. Said he thought that plane was pretty low - and then got lower...
Absolutely the wrong time of year to be in that water. It is amazing with all the people, the babies, the old people, that someone did not freeze to death. And it is something to be proud of - we respond to emergencies very quickly, and without quick response, those people would be dead.
Apparently it was birds, and the pilot did not have the time to return to LGA - so in NYC he ditched the plane the only place he safely could. But what a day for it! Cold and icy.
