JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Cheryl Bormann, one of 143 passengers on board the Miami Air flight Friday spoke about the plane skidding off the runway and into the St. Johns River:

"As we went down, we had a really hard landing.  And then the plane bounced and screeched and bounced some more.  It listed to the right and then it listed to the left.  And it sort of swerved, and then it came to a complete, like, crash stop."
