Some passengers have been saying they heard an explosion, and saw some passengers were covered in blood - One passenger states he saw flames coming from engine 1 and he called 911
Passenger Jeff Kolodjay of Norwalk, Conn., said he heard an explosion two or three minutes into the flight, looked out the left side of the Airbus 320 and saw one of the engines on fire.

Reports are in that 41 Bank of America employees on the plane
Fulmer Duckworth, 41, who does computer graphics for the Bank of America, was meeting with his boss on the 29th floor of the building at West 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue when he saw the plane hit the water. "It made this huge, gigantic splash, and I actually thought it was a boat crash at first," he said. "It didn't occur to me that it was a plane in the water."
What bothers me about the above statements Fulmer is making, is he saw the plane hit the water, "It made this huge, gigantic splash" then states he thought it was a "Boat Crash" then goes onto say "It didn't occur to me that it was a plane in the water"
