Tragedy On The Hudson (An Alternate View)

NEW YORK -Tragedy struck yesterday when two geese who were minding their own business were viciously plowed into by a US Airways passenger jet taking off from LaGuardia Airport. Two year old Harry Mallard and one year old Steve Goose were taking off with friends from their favorite marshland when the pair was horribly sucked into each of the aircraft's engines. A nearby duck who witnessed the incident said, "They were there one moment, and then 'poof', they were gone."
Relatives are planning to bring charges of reckless endangerment and negligent gooseslaughter against the pilot.

Harry and Steve, who had been lifelong friends, are shown in this undated photo.
