US Airways Flight 1549 from LaGuardia Airport in NYC to Charlotte NC crashed into the Hudson River at about 50th Street at about 3:20 PM on Thursday January 15, 2009. All persons on board were rescued by ferries and other boats in the area. The Hudson is a very busy waterway. This video clip is from NY1. Police and Coast Guard boats, and private ferries surround the plane which amazingly floats. It was reported that the plane flew into a flock of geese which caused the engines to stall.
