What a tragedy. My heart goes out to all the families of the nine victims. As has been stated aviation accidents are fairly common. It is relatively easy to get a pilot liscense and that shows based on how many of these private planes have accidents.

Last night some source on the Web said there were 6 survivors. Unfortunately that turned out not to be the case. All died. Here is an interview with witnesses who shot some photos of the crash.

I was listening to the FDNY radio (thanks ipod touch!) when it happened. Someone over the radio said that there was 6 survivors, so that's probably that miss information came from. In reality he was just describing the people on the helicopter. They actually got that information rather quickly, so I'm pretty impressed with that, though there was quite a bit of confusion about a rallying point.

There's hundreds of thousands of fatal car accidents on highways every year. Should we ban all cars from highways? Talk about a knee-jerk reaction.
