Crash Landing

On Friday, January 16, a plane crash landed in an icy river in New York. Amazingly, all the passengers on board survived.

The pilot was forced to bring the plane down in the Hudson River right after it took off from the nearby airport.

There were 150 passengers, three flight attendants and two pilots on board. When the plane landed in the water, everyone made their way out onto the wings where they were quickly rescued by ferries and emergency crews.

Officials think the plane’s engines failed after it collided with a flock of birds in the air.
