A fatal collision occurred on Thursday afternoon as a flock of geese crashed into a US Airways plane en route from New York to North Carolina.
The Canadian Geese flock was traveling south along the Hudson River when suddenly, as if out of nowhere, a huge jet wiped them out. It was a tragic scene as some of the birds were hit by engines on either side of the plane. Several birds were evidently lost in each engine causing the plane to make an emergency landing in the Hudson River.
At least 155 people aboard the plane survived. Reports from the ground are that there are no serious injuries. It is unknown how many birds were lost.
The crash is being treated as an accident since the plane was American and the geese, all believed to be Canadian decent, had no known ties to al Qaeda or any other terrorist organization.
Autopsies on the birds will probably not be possible since the plane eventually submerged under water. Unfortunately, the geese were traveling with their flock - so there isn't anyone to notify.
