Thankfully there are no reports of any injuries, but props to whoever reported it. It's nice to know people are watching and making sure their community is safe.
With that being said, Greene County NY Fire Wire had a pretty funny take on the whole situation. They updated their original "plane crash" status with the following:
Update, cityiot called in a float plane…. Sully is still the one and only Hudson River Legend…
After learning that everyone was fine, we had to laugh at the whole situation.
