Finally, a DavidS red alert that actually qualifies as such.
how close to NYC?
More: It's a USAir small jet, can seat about I'd say 100 or so people. It is actually kind of FLOATING in the Hudson River. It did not break apart. There are boats and rescue water craft near the jet rescuing passengers. This is AMAZING video. The pilot must have done an AMAZING job landing the craft in the water without the plane breaking apart. If no one was hurt or killed in the initial crash, I can't see how anyone could die from this at all. This is GREAT work by the NYPD and by the USAirways pilot.
In between NYC and Jerysey. 50th street level they're telling us.
146 passengers on board. 5 crew. Pilot reported some kind of strike.. it hit a bird. Took off from LaGuardia.
US Air Jet flight 1549.

The jet is completely submerged in the icy cold waters of the Hudson river. NYC reporters are really shaky, crying. WABC's anchor is crying. Very vivid memories of 9/11.
Did everyone get out?
