Thought the media had already covered every possible angle of the Miracle on the Hudson Flight 1549 crash? Think again!
Clothes, though, may be a minor part of a passenger’s baggage. Mr. Gamache lost a laptop, too, and the keys to two vehicles, one of them a push-button start key that he said would cost $400 to replace. He said he received conflicting instructions from the airline and its insurance company, AIG, about whether he could go out and replace everything.
“Karma, right?” he said. “I just survived a plane crash. I’m not going to do anything that could make someone mad.”
And Mr. Wentzell lost a box of Special K cereal that he travels with, for a lower-cholesterol breakfast than hotels usually provide.
This is a real article, printed in a real paper, that shows why print media is really, really screwed. Seriously, he lost his box of Special damned K. Let’s take up a collection for the poor sod and get him a replacement box of crunchy goodness!
