WJLA has an interview with Marguerite McCausland, one of the flight attendants on the plane.
“I recognized that we were in danger, and I remember somebody saying, 'we're going to crash,’” McCausland says.
McCausland, strapped in her seat near the cockpit, blacked out. She came to buried in burning debris and heard a baby nearby:
“The baby was crying. And then there was dead silence. There was no sound at all,” she says.
