Lucky to be alive

Earlier tonight a US Airways plane flying from New York to North Carolina crashed into the Hudson River. With 150 passengers on board & 5 cabin crew, there were no deaths which is a miracle & only minor wounds have been reported. The cause has so far been blamed on a flock of geese who ended up breaking down both engines of the plane by flying right into them!

Witnesses reported that the pilot tried his hardest to land the plane as softly & safely as possible. This resulted in the plane landing as a whole and not breaking into pieces on impact along with being close to the ferry terminals so that rescuers could attend the scene within minutes.

The picture below shows the plane slowly sinking into the river along with rescue boats and if you look closely you can see survivors standing on the wings of the plane & the blow up rafts while awaiting for help!

Lucky Lucky Guys!
