Courtesy of Reuters Pictures, a powerful image indeed. If you haven't yet seen Katie Couric's riveting interview with Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger on 60 Minutes, you should. She then went on to interview the other 4 crew members & included footage of a reunion with passengers from Flight1549. The piece aired last nite.
The above photo, or one like it, will likely win the Pulitzer Prize. Couric's 60 Minutes package should win something, too. The gal flat-out knows how to capture the essence of emotion.
The interview with Sully can be viewed here. The story about the interview can be read here. Please spend some time perusing CBS's splendid coverage.
Couric asked Sully if the passengers talked to him after all had evacuated.
"One man did. He said, 'You saved my life, thank you'."
And how did the captain respond?
