It's been about an hour now since the news broke about the plane crash in the Hudson River. I was completely shocked, because I thought if the plane went down on approach to or just after takeoff from the airport, it wouldn't be on this side of Manhattan. During nice weather, I run on the west side and go by that area! Scary!
From watching the news on my computer, it sounds like everyone is fine, which is amazing. It's SO cold outside (wind chill around 11) which is scary for those people who were on board.
But now I'm wondering -- since the plane landed in the water in one piece (like a controlled landing) -- what now happens with the luggage and carry on bags? Will people get them back?
