This is the location where the plane, a B737, impacted the water and sank.
The accident was caused by the pilots failing to activate the wing anti-ice, among other things.
74 On board died, and 4 were killed on the the 14th street bridge, which the plane impacted.
Five survived the crash; a sixth survivor, Arland D. Williams, Jr, survived the crash but directed others to be rescued before him; he sadly did not survive for his turn at rescue.
Two passerbys, Roger Olian and Lenny Skutnik, entered the water to attempt to help a local Parks Police helicopter to rescue the survivors.
