US Airways Flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River in New York City today, after apparently hitting a flock of geese, disabling both engines.
Yahoo article excerpt: '"It was bad, man," Jeff Kolodjay of Norwalk, CT, said. But he and others spoke of a sense of calm and purpose that quickly descended on the passengers and crew as the plane started filling with water and rescue boats swarmed to the scene. They decided women and children would be evacuated first.'
NY Daily News: 'Like the Titanic with a happy ending, "all the guys on the plane did a good job that the women and children got off first," Kolodjay said.'
Chivalry still lives, folks.
