A plane went down in the Henry Hudson today around 43rd Street. Early reports indicate that there are survivors in the freezing water and they are currently being aided by the authorities. Authorities are speculating that the plane was taken down by birds. Passengers riding the Ram Van at the time claim they couldn’t see anything but that traffic was extremely slow on the Henry Hudson Parkway going southbound.

If, by some chance, you should read this before going on the Ram Van, take the subway.
