Description:
Die Maschine mit der Flugnummer 1549 war auf dem Flughafen LaGuardia mit dem Ziel Charlotte in North Carolina gestartet. Die Absturzstelle befand sich in der Nähe der 48. Strasse in Manhattan. Eine Kollision mit einem Vogelschwarm hatte offenbar beide Triebwerke ausfallen lassen und den Piloten kurz nach dem Start dazu gezwungen, den Airbus A320 in den eiskalten Fluss zu steuern. Laut Bundespolizei FBI gab es keine Anzeichen für einen Terroranschlag. Auch das Heimatschutzministerium ging nicht von einem Anschlag aus. The plane, a US Airways Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., struck a flock of birds during takeoff minutes earlier at LaGuardia Airport and was submerged up to its windows in the river by the time rescuers arrived in Coast Guard vessels and ferries. Some passengers waded in water up to their knees, standing on the wing of the plane and waiting for help. "He was phenomenal," passenger Joe Hart said. "He landed it — I tell you what — the impact wasn't a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you. "Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river," he added. In a city still wounded from the aerial attack on the World Trade Center, authorities were quick to assure the public that terrorism wasn't involved. Police divers had to rescue some of the passengers from underwater, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. Among those on board was one infant who appeared to be fine, the mayor said. Helen Rodriguez, a paramedic who was among the first to arrive at the scene, said she saw one woman with two broken legs. Fire officials said others were evaluated for hypothermia, bruises and other minor injuries. "We had a miracle on 34th Street. I believe now we have had a miracle on the Hudson," Gov. David Paterson said. The crash took place on a 20-degree day, one of the coldest of the season in New York. The water temperature was 36 degrees, Coast Guard Lt. Commander Moore said. He estimates that hypothermia can hit within five to eight minutes at that temperature. 'Brace for impact' "The captain said, 'Brace for impact because we're going down,'" passenger Jeff Kolodjay said. He said passengers put their heads in their laps and started praying. He said the plane hit the water pretty hard, but he was fine. The pilot was identified as Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger of Danville, Calif. "It was intense. It was intense. You've got to give it to the pilot. He made a hell of a landing," Kolodjay said. "He is the consummate pilot," his wife, Lorrie Sullenberger, told the New York Post. Sullenberger is an U.S. Air Force Academy grad who flew F-4 fighter planes while in the Air Force, she said. "He is about performing that airplane to the exact precision to which it is made."
