A TU-204 passenger jet made a hard landing at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow. Then it crashed into the nearby highway. Debris can be seen flying onto the roadway & slamming right into traffic. The Interior Ministry reports that at least 4 were killed & 4 critically injured. Officials believe that the crash could have been caused by pilot error. Two people were found dead at the scene while a third, a 27-year-old woman, died on tyhe way to the hospital.

As father of a seven-year-old, the unthinkable tragedy in Newtown, CT hits me hard. Even so, I haven’t allowed myself to think about it too much; I don’t think I would deal well with the anxiety & pain. What the parents & relatives of these poor children & staff members must be going through must be beyond description. I can’t imagine what the first responders & backup among police, fire & EMS must have been thinking or feeling. Yet they faithfully performed their duties in the face of the unthinkable. My heart goes out to all involved & affected. Rest in peace.

These firefighters responding to this horrible accident knew they had little time to treat & transport the patient, & There was no time to get a jack. So they tried the brute force approach. They lifted the car off the pinned cyclist themselves. Sometimes teamwork & a sense of urgency can do the job.
