Are they reporting injuries? It would be a miracle if nobody was injured in this.

It's on the news of course. The plane is partially underwater, but I guess there are some survivors.

according to my television, they're saying not everyone is out yet. :-?

I certainly hope they get everyone out alive though.

Apparently the plane hit something and then the cockpit and cabin started to fill with smoke - appears captain did a perfect job of smoothly landing in the water.

Plane had just taken off and had only been in the air for 3 minutes when it hit a large flock of birds - pilot reportd a "double hit" (2 engines???)

Fox and CNN both say that the plane is empty and the feed has a tugboat towing it away.

they were canadian geese... it took years... but canada finally attacked... watch Bush try to start another war in his last 4 days.

(i only joke here because everyone is safe and it was more like an emergency landing than a crash.)
