Rescue teams this morning were working "round the clock, with all hands on deck" to locate any surviving geese involved in Thursday's crash landing of US Airways Flight 1594, according to team lead Robert Hansen.

"You prepare your whole life for something like this, but it doesn't make it easier," the 19 year veteran said as divers surfaced from the frigid Hudson river with what appeared to be a couch cushion and size 11 men's athletic shoe, but no geese.

Emergency expert Diana Lang says the first 72 hours are critical. "After that, the chances of survival drop dramatically, especially when you're dealing with birds possibly trapped under water," she says.

But Hansen and his team are showing no signs of quit. "We were brought here to do a job, and we won't rest until it's done."
