I got the news during our final "Vixen" rehearsal: A plane had gone down on the Hudson River.
By the end of the rehearsal, reports were that everyone on board had actually survived.
Here the pilot is identified as Danville, California resident Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III.
According to reports, "Sully" was the last person off the plane, walking through the aircraft twice to make sure that every soul had been safely evacuated.
I have heard the word "miracle" used repeatedly to describe this event.
I couldn't agree more.
