US Airways Plane Crashes Into The Hudson River

A U.S. Airways plane , flight # 1549 from LaGuardia to Charlotte, N.C., came down in the Hudson River off New York City on Thursday, and remained afloat in the frigid waters.Local media said the plane was an Airbus with 150 passengers and five crew which had just taken off from La Guardia Airport and was trying to return after apparently striking a flock of birds.More than a dozen people wearing yellow life vests were seen on the wings of the downed plane as it floated in the river, and they were plucked to safety by ferries that surrounded the jet.
All passengers and crew were rescued from the plane.
