Rescue Work

RESCUE WORK….I didn’t notice this when I first read about Tuesday’s Air France crash in Toronto:

Rescue crews arrived 52 seconds after the plane crashed ? by which time officials said a majority of passengers already had escaped. Everyone was evacuated within about two minutes.

That’s pretty damn impressive on all counts.
