U.S. Airways Crash Rescue Picture: Citizen Journalism, Twitter At Work

Twitter at work / US Airway River LandingFrom SMM student Scott:

Hi Bev,
Maybe post this on the SMM website?.....not only was this twitter live from the site but it is the best photo of the drama that I have seen so far.....

Janis Krums from Sarasota, Florida posts the first photo of U.S. Airways flight 1549 on Twitter from his iPhone. Thirty-four minutes after Janis posted his photo, MSNBC interviewed him live on TV as a witness (see video below). News coverage at Google. Live video at Fox News. TV reports suggest that everyone survived the crash.



Here's the video of Krums talking on MSNBC.
