(New York, NY) — Two air traffic controllers on duty during last Saturday’s mid-air collision over the Hudson River in New York have been suspended by the FAA. The agency says the controller in charge of the plane that hit a helicopter was on the phone when the collision occurred. The FAA is also suspending his boss, who was not in the building at the time of the collision. But the FAA stresses in its investigation that there’s quote, “no reason to believe at this time that these actions contributed to the accident.”
