An environmentalist group have wasted no time issuing a writ against the pilot of the downed US Airlines aeroplane that crashed into the Hudson River.

The plane's pilot, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, was hailed by passengers as a hero, but environmentalists vehemently disagree, saying that Sullenberger was merely "showing off."

Citing "untold suffering to a dozen or so fish and the brutal murder of at least three water boatmen" the group called the the incident "a heinous crime against innocent aquatic life."

"It should be illegal to land a planeload of passengers on a major North American waterway," fumed a group spokesman.

"Due to this pilot's irresponsible behaviour dozens of microscopic marine insects are now orphaned," he went on.

Seperate reports that at least one passenger will also sue Sullenberg over "a completely ruined Guicci handbag" remain unconfirmed.

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