Coast Guard Footage of Flight 1549 Landing in the Hudson

Go in 2 minutes to see the crash and aftermath. Looking at the video, it appears the plane came to rest at 3:31:10PM and started to drift with the current down river. Just about everyone seems to be out of the plane when the camera panned off at 3:32:45PM to show a ferry on the way. The ferry was at the plane (as the plane drifted towards the ferry) at 3:35:00PM. Another ferry arrived on the opposite side of the plane at 3:37:30PM. A third ferry made it to the plane at 3:38:00PM.

A rescue response at an airport couldn't do much better!
