The boat, just before it left the water.

A boat has landed on the runway of New York's JFK airport, not far from the Hudson River. All passengers are said to have survived.

The boat had just taken off from its mooring in the river and was trying to turn back after hitting a fish, but the impact caused the boat to veer wildly off course, and it came to rest on the runway.

Fire crews and ambulance crews raced to the scene to help passengers disembark, and all 146 passengers, plus five crew, managed to leave the boat safely.

The passengers were taken into the airport terminal where they were charged with an act of terrorism for blocking the runway.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
