Miracle on the Hudson
A highly experienced pilot and crew put to use all of their training. A fleet of boats shows up within minutes. Not a single person was lost, many barely got their feet wet. It's a truly amazing coming together of capable and dedicated people and events. Not to mention a plane that evidently floats better than it flies.
Inevitably, people on the scene and people watching and opining are calling it a miracle, and thanking God.
Know what I'd call a miracle? How about if God hadn't tossed a bunch of geese into the engines in the first place?
