Another missing post. Irrelevant at this late date but the original may have been linked to. Not going to look for it. AP was wrong anyway.

This is in reference to the AP report that a passenger due to testify at NTSB HEARING this week allegedly alleges Ms Welsh opened the rear door not a panicked passenger. Why would she make that up? Ms Welsh has always been consistent with her story that a passenger got past her and opened the door. Not that it mattered much because water was already coming in from below. The baggage compartment had pushed up through the floor, which presumably was what cut her.
COREY CALDWELL, spokeswoman for the Association of Flight Attendants Union said Welsh was unavailable for comment.
While there may be conflicting reports regarding the exact actions of what happened immediately after crashing, the bottom line is that everyone was evacuated.
