    It was amazing that nobody was seriously hurt, no fatalities, awesome job done by the crew and all the locals who came with the various boats and rescued everyone. Great ending! I would have been on my BB too! Standing on the wing, taking pictures and texting/emailing/BBMing everyone I knew!

    There have been a lot of awesome stories coming out of this. The pilot deserves a lot of credit as well as his crew. Also some of the first pics of it I saw on CNN were taken by a (you guessed it) Blackberry.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Az, would you have had a spare plastic bag for your BB in your purse to keep it dry? If my wife is any indication, women carry a lot of odd stuff in their purses. From the weight of my wife's purse, you'd think she had a concealed permit (complete with a piece) in there - she doesn't.

    I agree guys it's an amazing story I hope the passengers stay in touch with each other along with the crew. I am not sure if I would be that cool I have a horrible fear of water and the thought of us falling into it might have gave me a heart attack. I am so thankful that it was a miracle not sure if NY could handle another tragic event.

    Oh and Jblackfish a purse is not a purse without a few household gadgets a girl never knows what we might need in a course of a day. I believe I had some jumper cables in mine .

    Not surprised, Tia. Sometimes I wish I could carry one so I could carry more of my junk around with me. Of course there are backpacks. When I travel there's usually one on my shoulder - on a plane, there's always one under the seat in front of me...and I'm gonna add a plastic bag to my stuff too.

    LOL @ tia. I would have been a basket case. I don't like to fly and I hate being in water that I can't swim to the bottom and touch. I said swim not sink...:P

    It is great to hear that everyone made it out safely and that they were so many people there ready to act and to help. I liked hearing the stories of people giving up clothing and comfort to those passengers who were freezing and frightened.

    What a great ending!

    Hi-five to the pilots, crew, city workers and ordinary citizens who were there to make this an amazing story!

    I would have been sending pics and whatnot, then if things got down to it, I"d rip the battery out of the BB. Mine's been through a river once, it can do it again.

    That pilot should get a late christmas bonus.

    Jblkfish you can get a man bag if you feel the need to carry such goods. Moderncowboy I can't swim at all and due to my older brother throwing me into the pond as a kid I can now thank him for my phobia. I love to look at water and maybe put my feet in it but I can do much more. No pools or hot tubs they freak me out. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It is an amazing story. And the few times I do fly, I actually do keep my phone in a baggie. I thought I was just mildly neurotic (and still probably am), but this just reinforces my neurosis.

    I do carry all sorts of goodies in my purse, not as much now that my son is a teenager. I used to have to carry a lot more "mommy" stuff. I have occasionally been able to provide tools, odd spare batteries, and just about anything found in a medicine cabinet out of my purse. No jumper cables though .......oh, not usually plastic baggies either, but when I travel, yes either in my carry on or my purse, there are baggies of various sizes
