Cory Lidle Plane Crash

So… The other day, I’m minding my business….. (Like I love to do)… and my sister calls me talking about “a small plane hit a building on the east side. I check out the TV, and there’s an apartment building with a few windows with fire coming out of them. I grabbed the camera and headed out.

I hopped on the bus, and unfortunately for me, I thought the reporter said 77th street & York. I got out on 78th & 2nd, and the fire trucks and police vehicles kept whizzing by. Turns out the crash was on 72nd street, so I had some jogging to do. I finally got down there, and the fire was pretty much contained. There’s still some smoke coming out of the apartment(s), but everything was pretty calm and the whole block was taped off. There was a helicopter floating around, which was apparently Channel 4 News.

After I got there, nothing really happened. I guess people were waiting to see IF something happened. I headed out as it started raining. The ‘funny’ thing is that when I got back home and turned on the TV…… the building was still on fire! :/ It was then that I realized that the news was running the same footage over and over and had been doing that the whole time. It’s completely possible that the fire was out before I even left my house.

Anyway… Here I go, ‘racing’ to the accident scene on public transportation!

Reinventing Television

Last night, I checked out Reinventing Television, hosted by Jonny Goldstein, with special guest Bre Pettis.

==> Watch The Video! <== The show uses webcams and tele-conferencing to bring people together to discuss cutting-edge issues in video blogging. Air-time is Thursday nights @ 10pm EST. You don't need a webcam to be involved... just a broadband connection & browser to see the video and a telephone to call the toll-free conference number to listen in. I definitely learned a few things I didn't know and I'm looking forward to next week's show, featuring Geek Entertainment TV.

So now the text blog begins…

ReelSolid.TV started out on May 27th, 2006. It’s time to expand to text because making video for the web has made me aware of the community of vloggers. I need a space to record what’s going on for me outside the realm of video creation.

So… this is it….. ๐Ÿ˜€

Yankees’ Cory Lidle Plane Crash on 72nd Street in Manhattan, NYC

NEW YORK รขโ‚ฌโ€ A small plane with New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle aboard crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, killing two people, authorities said.
There was no immediate confirmation Lidle was among the dead, and earlier reports indicated four had died. A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press that Lidle was on the plane. And Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to the athlete, National Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman Deborah Hersman told reporters.

An instructor and a student pilot were on the plane when it struck the tower at 524 E. 72nd St., New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. “The metal parts are basically in the street. The engine was on one of the floors,” he said.

“The initial indication is that there is a terrible accident,” Homeland Security Department spokesman Russ Knocke said, and Bloomberg said there was “nothing to suggest that anything remotely like terrorism was involved in this.” Nevertheless, fighter jets were scrambled over U.S. cities as a precaution, the Pentagon said.

The crash at the Belaire overlooking the East River struck fear in a city devastated by the attacks of Sept. 11 five years ago. Sirens echoed across the neighborhood as emergency workers and ambulances rushed in with stretchers. Broken glass and debris were strewn around the neighborhood.
