"Oh Lord Have Mercy"... On Flight 214
The following home video showing the crash of Asiana Flight 214 was broadcast today in the television and internet news media. It was then shared countless times via retweeting, etc. It features the man recording the footage narrating what he observes. As compelling as the visual elements here are I feel Mr. Hayes rather beautifully human and incredibly appropriate response is one of the more memorable elements to come out of this story for me. Note: I wonder why I hear a cheer at one point in this video coming from someone observing the dust cloud coming up from the crash? Not cool!
