The Next Sully

Pilot Credited in 'Miracle' Crash

A lot of passengers are counting their blessings: A plane in Colombia tore into three pieces when it crashed into the runway on Monday morning. One passenger was killed, but the rest—130 people—survived, many with injuries. The plane was landing on the runway of the airport on the island of San Andres when bad weather interfered—some reports say a downdraft shook the plane while others say it was struck by lightning. San Andres Governor Pedro Gallardo said the incident was a "miracle." Many are crediting the plane's skilled pilot for minimizing casulaties.
