Not enough death and destruction in it for you?
It was newsworthy because the pilot did a fantastic job in bringing the plane down with no engines into a river with nobody seriously hurt. Hailed a miracle I think it was a pleasant distraction from the crap happening in the world right now.
THE investigation into the US Airways Airbus crash into New York's Hudson River has been hampered by the loss of both engines in the river and the inability to reach the plane's black box, officials say.

I can't believe some of you people. This story was amazing! These passengers were heroic and they showed how resilient we can be. The pilot did a great job at landing in the water and everyone made it out safely... I agree with the other users... it was really uplifting.
