Mayor Michael Bloomberg says police divers had to rescue some passengers from underwater after a jetliner carrying 155 people crashed in the Hudson River.
Bloomberg says he has spoken with the pilot and a passenger who claimed to be the last one off the plane. All passengers survived.
The mayor said, "It would appear that the pilot did a masterful job of landing the plane in the river, and then making sure everybody got out."
Bloomberg says most of the rescued were picked up right away and put on police, Coast Guard and ferry boats. He says divers pulled a few passengers from underwater.
Flight 1549 went down minutes after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, splashing into the river near midtown Manhattan.
