Hudson River Crash

I’m a news junkie, and I’ve been watching and reading all the coverage of the US Airways crash I can. As a mother, I am overcome with thoughts about how I would handle that situation if I had been on that plane with my daughter. I’ve read all the witness and survivor accounts I can. With the exception of Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, every single one of the witnesses and survivors I’ve seen interviewed has been male. I know there was a mother and baby on the flight. I’d really like to hear a mother’s view. Please share if you’ve seen or heard any.

    The mother with the 9-month old son, along with the father who was seated 3 or 4 rows behind with the 2 1/2 year old daughter were interviewed on the Today show the day after the crash. It was an amazing interview about how a complete stranger help the mom and her son, both during the impact and after the crash. The mom and her two children were immediately put in the raft while the dad waited on the wing for rescue. You might be able to see the interview if you go to the Today show website and search for it.
