U.S. Airways Flight 1549 crashed earlier today in the Hudson River next to New York City after birds struck both of its engines. But miraculously, all 155 people onboard survived! This included 150 passengers and 5 crew members. The plane was headed to Charlotte, North Carolina.
It reportedly hit the water in between 42nd Street in NYC and Weehawken, NJ. Then it began floating south down the Hudson River.
