Please , please . Do not give WRONG headlines JUST to sensationalize ! It is criminal to do so , yellow journalism at its worst . The chopper did not go down IN the Hudson river . It went down ON the River .
The original news has the headlines "Chopper's emergency landing on Hudson"
I hope the author knows this much of English language !
And am I right that the chopper was equipped with pontoons ! So where is the Q of going "down in Hudson river" ?
On ground if an aircraft makes an emergency landing , do we classify it as "air crash" ?

Thank you.

For what it is worth, I just clicked on the link I posted and CNN's headline still says IN, not ON.
