TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Miami resident and a Tallahassee resident were among the 155 passengers who survived a US Airways plane crash into the Hudson River in New York.
Ray Mandrell, 30, of Miami, says he suffered a sprained wrist and his friend and colleague, Reenee Williams of Tallahassee was treated for hypothermia.
The pair had been on the plane after a meeting with Atlantic Records to discuss the possibility of signing artists, including an artist Mandrell represents, Tallahassee-based rapper Mr. Bones.
Mandrell says he was sitting in a window seet and saw the engine fail and that the splashdown felt like a "bad automobile accident."
