Edited since it is now being reported as bird ingestion that brought it down. Thank God they all survived.

No deaths or serious injuries were immediately reported.
The Pilot Should be Commended, he did a great job, with a damaged plane for sure, interesting sight seeing the passengers just standing out on the wing.

As the report on MSNBC stated, the plane was hit by several birds. So what's the problem with the Airbus? Same could have happened to a Boeing or any other plane as well...

They said they were possibly geese too, a pretty good sized bird.

WOW it's a miracle everyone walked (sailed) away. Since it happened right after takeoff, it didn't even have a whole lotta speed. I don't think A320s glide too well....
Glad everyone's OK.

That pilot is a true hero along with all of the people on board that didn't panic and the New York City rescue personnel.

God Bless (Blessed) them all!

Great work by the pilot. Losing both engines at low altitude with low airspeed and a high angle of attack, he had no time at all to make decisions, and this could have turned out very bad. It just goes to show that an airplane that goes down in a controlled manner rather than stalled is very survivable. I used to demo for my students what they would have to do if they lost an engine on takeoff like that, you have to dump the nose over INSTANTLY, there's no time to think.

Putting it into the water has it's benefits. No fire and when put in correctly, very survivable.

If you really think about it, the pilot not only saved his passengers and crew, he avoided possible major collateral damage and loss of life on the ground.

Amazing

I fly on 319s and 320s for work and it's good to see how survivable this aircraft is when it comes to ditching. As another strange coincidence, the pilot was from Danville, CA (my hometown) and went to the USAF Academy, where I started (but didn't finish )my college career.

Most aircraft would be survivable ditching into the right terrain such as water) but depends how it hits the water
remember this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZyD...feature=related

Not entirely true... That aircraft cartwheeled because the left engine hit a shallow reef. Not so much that it hit the water with the left engine first.
