    If you are religions, maybe you can say a prayer, if you're not, maybe you can send some positive thoughts in the direction of New York's Hudson River. I hope they can get everyone off the plane and warm before hypothermia sets in or the plane sinks. May God have mercy.

    Yeah, supposedly everyone got off the plane quickly. Since it didn't even take off, it just sort of skidded into the water. I can't imagine it would have caused too much of a disaster.

    I feel bad for any pets that were on board. Whenever I hear about plane crashes, I always think of the dogs and cats that may have been in the cargo hold. That makes me sad :(

    actually biff it did take off and had already made the turn over the hudson river and the last ping the airplane made was at 300 ft and 153 knots so it was in the air and then crashed into the water

    The funny things is, I am with you Biff. Sometimes I feel more empathy for animals vs. humans. For the simple fact that I believe that most animals have a bigger heart then most humans.

    i didnt see that but it doesnt surprise me. as soon as it happened i was texting my brother and i said "even though the airline isnt at fault for this, no one was seriously injured or killed, how many people do you think will sue?"

    Sounds like maybe someone has misplaced priorities. I hope she can find it in her heart to be thankful that she is alive today to complain about those glasses!

    she is probably so ignorant and doesnt realize that if that plane would have hit the water 1* differently in any direction that plane would have broken apart and everyone would probably be dead

    Those must've been some expensive glasses. She should check her ass for the missing glasses. Because she apparently has her head up there too, so maybe she's still wearing them.
