(laugh) kristen dahlgren: so maybe thanks in part to the miracle on the hudson. laura zych-mccormack: yeah, i think so. i definitely would give credit to that a 'wingwoman' in every sense of the word.... ten years later, it seems the miracle on the hudson isnt finished yet. on cam tag that was kristen dahlgren reporting. ### linda
