Update: The FAA reports that all passengers are safe.
A flock of geese may have caused US Ariways flight 1594 to crash into the Hudson River this afternoon. The flight, and its 155 passengers were headed from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, NC. One witness described what she saw: “I just thought, ‘Why is it so low?' And, splash, it hit the water.”
The extent of injuries is not certain, but ferries and helicopters are helping rescue passengers and crew from the freezing waters.
