Another Rescue On The Hudson

Everybody remember the crash of US Airways Flight 1549? Where Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger heroically landed the huge A320 Airbus on the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 people on board....

Since the plane crash, reporters and camera crews were kept away from the scene by the police and the FBI.... However, New Yorker David Hugh Martin, who has an apartment right above the Hudson River, positioned his camera to record the rescue of the plane.... Three days of rescue footage were clipped together to make an amazing time lapse video of crews trying to bring the plane out of the river. It's amazing to watch the plane struggle to stay afloat as huge chunks of ice barrage the rescue efforts....

  2. Those barges were waaayy bigger than they looked... it wasn't until the plane came out of the water that I realized how huge they were! Didn't it look kind of like toys in a bathtub or something, though? It was sort of surreal-looking!
