A plane crash in Hudson River leaves all passengers on board safe.
Wired PR News.com – In what some have termed a modern day miracle, no fatalities were reported after a plane crashed into the Hudson River on Thursday. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the plane had 155 passengers on board, with only one report of a serious injury. The plane reportedly struck a flock of birds while leaving LaGuardia Airport and subsequently became submerged in the water.
New York Governor David Paterson is quoted as stating of the incident, “We had a miracle on 34th Street. I believe now we have had a miracle on the Hudson” in regards to it not resulting in any fatalities or a large number of serious injuries.
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is also quoted as commenting, “It would appear that the pilot did a masterful job of landing the plane in the river, and then making sure everybody got out.”
