Video of the scene showed passengers climbing out of the plane through an exit over a wing and trudging through thick snow.It was the most dramatic incident on a day in which a huge winter storm forced thousands of flight cancellations, and disrupted life across a broad swath of the United States.In Washington DC, government workers were ordered to stay home, schools were closed, and museums shuttered for the day as icy rain turned to heavy snow.Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York were expected to get as much as eight inches of snow, with wind chill temperatures dipping well below average in much of the region.Forecasters had warned of low visibility in New York, and some 40 percent of flights had been canceled at La Guardia before the accident there, according to flightaware.com.“We just crash landed at LGA. I’m terrified. Please,” passenger Jaime Primak tweeted from @jaimeprimak.“We have all been evacuated. Everyone is safe. Thank you for your prayers. God is good.”Delta said the 125 passengers and six crew members aboard the plane had disembarked via aircraft slides and were moved to the terminal on buses. Share Tweetlast_img read more

DESORMEAUX’S IRISH HEATWAVE TAKES ON FAMILIAR RIVALS AS HE HEADS SATURDAY’S $100,000 CALIFORNIA CUP TURF SPRINT AT 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN SANTA ANITA’S HILLSIDE TURF RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED RUNNERSARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 22, 2019)–Trainer Keith Desormeaux’s late running Irish Heatwave will head a field of seven California-bred or sired sophomores at 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in Saturday’s $100,000 California Cup Turf Sprint, which is a part of the lucrative Golden State Series.Primary among his competition are Reddam Racing’s homebred Listing, Academic Farms’ homebred Teacher’s Treasure and trainer Doug O’Neill’s Takeo Squared.IRISH HEATWAVEOwner:  Calumet FarmTrainer:  Keith DesormeauxA colt by legendary late stallion Unusual Heat, he comes off a gutty nose win over Listing down the hillside turf on Jan. 1.  A half length winner of a one mile turf maiden special weight versus state-breds two starts back on Nov. 3, he bids for his third consecutive win with apprentice Asa Espinoza up.  A late runner who’ll be making his fifth career start, Irish Heatwave could be victimized by what appears to a lack of pace in the Turf Sprint lineup.LISTINGOwner:  Reddam Racing, LLCTrainer:  Ben CecilBy Paul Reddam’s Square Eddie and out of his Yonaguska mare Marquis Diamond, Listing is the only horse in the field to have defeated Irish Heatwave, as he prevailed over his rival by 7 ½ lengths in the state-bred I’m Smokin Stakes, which was Listing’s first start on Aug. 31 at Del Mar.  By California’s current top stallion, look for Listing to bring his “A-Game” in the Turf Sprint, which will be his fifth career start.TEACHER’S TREASUREOwner:  Academic FarmsTrainer:  Eddie TrumanA chestnut gelding by Square Eddie, he’s done little wrong, finishing no worse than third in four starts.  Out of the Half Term mare Corissa’s Birthday, Teacher’s Treasure pressed the pace throughout and was third, beaten 1 ¼ lengths in a hillside turf allowance won by Irish Heatwave on Jan. 1 and certainly rates an upset chance with regular pilot Edgar Payeras back in the saddle.TAKEO SQUAREDOwner:  EC Racing, LLC, MyRacehorse.com, Lyle Egan and Steve RothblumTrainer:  Doug O’NeillFourth, beaten 2 ¼ lengths in the same hillside turf allowance that Irish Heatwave, Listing, Teacher’s Treasure and Offshore Affair exit, the same hillside allowance on New Year’s Da.  Takeo Squared, who was bred by EC Racing and Rothblum, is yet another gelded son of Square Eddie.  Devoid of early foot, he’ll hope to make his presence felt from off the pace in what will be his ninth career start.THE $100,000 CALIFORNIA CUP TURF SPRINT WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERlast_img read more
