    Exclamation US Airways Jet Crashes In Hudson River



    US Airways Flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia Airport and was headed to Charlotte, N.C. (WCBS)
    (CBS/AP) A US Airways plane has crashed into the Hudson River, sending passengers fleeing for safety in the frigid waters.

    New York City firefighters are responding to the accident. It was not immediately clear if there were injuries.

    CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports that FAA says the jet was USAIR Flight 1549, an Airbus A320. It took off from LaGuardia, experienced a bird strike, and went down into the Hudson River.


    (CBS/AP) A US Airways plane has crashed into the Hudson River, sending passengers fleeing for safety in the frigid waters.

    Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown says the US Airways Flight 1549 had just taken off from LaGuardia Airport enroute to Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday when the crash occured in the river near 48th Street in midtown Manhattan.

    The FBI said there is no information that the plane crash was terrorism-related.

    Brown says the plane, an Airbus 320, may have been hit by birds.

    According to FlightAware, which tracks flights, the aircraft was airborne less than 6 minutes, the maximum altitude was 3,200 feet before beginning its descent, reports CBS News.

    "I just thought, 'Why is it so low?' And, splash, it hit the water," said witness Barbara Sambriski, a researcher at The Associated Press.

    The plane was submerged in the icy waters up to the windows. Rescue crews had opened the door and were pulling passengers in yellow life vests from the plane. Several boats surrounded the plane, which appeared to be slowly sinking.

    New York City firefighters are responding to the crash. It was not immediately clear if there were injuries.

    "I saw what appeared to be a tail fin of a plane sticking out of the water," said Erica Schietinger, whose office windows at Chelsea Piers look out over the Hudson. "All the boats have sort of circled the area. ... I can't tell what's what at this point."
    The flight was headed to Charlotte, N.C. and scheduled to arrive at 4:50 pm, Orr reports.

    I just watched the news conference with Mayor Bloomberg. Apparently there were 155 passengers, including all crew & one infant, and because of the smooth landing the pilot made in the Hudson, along with the help from the waterways crews, everyone got out safely. The pilot said he walked up and down the plane twice after the accident to make sure the plane was clear. Also, the last passenger off the plane said he checked to make sure there was no one left behind. It really is a miracle.
