News never sleeps

Posted By on Sun, Jan 18, 2009 at 6:58 AM

If only I could stay up all night, I'd have seen this note from a reader shortly before 1 a.m. today:

Just thought I'd share some breaking news with ya -- med flight helicopter had to make emergency landing at an intersection in Forrest City.  They had just dropped off a patient in Memphis.  They hit a flock of geese.  Hit the helicopter all over. Lost all electronics. Came through the windshield. Injured the pilot. The same pilot that was in the Game and Fish crash.

KTHV is up with a story. Minor injuries to pilot and it's not confirmed if it was the same pilot in the crash of the G&FC chopper in which a passenger died or if geese were the cause. Channel 11 put the emergency landing about six miles east of Forrest City, in Widener.

SPEAKING OF BIRD-CAUSED CRASHES. Wouldn't you know it? Various security cameras in New York caught the Hudson River landing of the US Airways plane on video. Go to this link to watch a compilation on CNN. Or just see below.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
