(Refiles to fix Celsius conversion) Stocks Global Markets By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Passengers from the US Airways(LCC.N) plane that crash-landed in New York's Hudson Riverhuddled on the wings in freezing air while those in the icywater went limp from the cold and would not have survived morethan a few minutes, rescuers said. None of the 155 people on board were seriously injured,officials said, despite the frigid conditions and the river'sswift current.
But many were panicked and frightened as theywere pulled from the wrecked plane, said local ferry crews andpolice divers who were first on the scene. The US Airways flight 1549, with 150 passengers and fivecrew, were aboard the Airbus A320, bound for Charlotte, NorthCarolina from New York's LaGuardia Airport. The pilot made anemergency landing in the river just minutes after take off. Many passengers climbed out onto the wrecked plane's wings,while some clambered into an inflated rescue raft and othersfloundered in the water, said Wilfredo Rivera, a ferryboatdeckhand who helped pull dozens of passengers to safety "Everyone was nervous Everybody was screaming Everyonewas in shock," Rivera said. Two New York Police Department divers who dove fromhelicopters to rescue distraught passengers said the river'stemperature was at its coldest of the winter, at about 41degrees Fahrenheit (5 Celcius). The passengers in the water would not have survived formore than five or ten minutes, said Detective Michael Delaney,one of the divers.
"Their extremities were frozen cold," he said, adding ofone woman, "She was just pretty much limp at that time." The air temperature was around 20 F, or minus 6 C, on a daythat saw heavy snow storms in the morning. One frantic woman was clinging to the side of a ferry boatbut could not hold on, Delaney said "She said, 'Please don't let me go,'" he said. Vince Lombardi, a ferryboat captain with NY Waterway whichoperates service on the Hudson River between New York and NewJersey said passengers voiced their relief when he steered hisboat in to help with the rescue "They were cheering when we pulled up," he said. "Therewere a lot of scared people." Javier Soto, a passenger on a ferry on the way fromManhattan to New Jersey, described how people on the boatpitched in to help "There were people standing on the wing They were allafraid to take the dive," he said.
