Date:9/10/2009

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ --. Two heroes of the emergency landing of Flight 1549 into the icy waters of New York's Hudson River last January will visit the Twin Cities area this month to host a Wings of Mercy benefit and fundraiser.

Patrick Harten, the quick-thinking flight controller, who helped Flight 1549 Captain Chelsey (Sully) Sullenberger choose an emergency response, and cool-headed flight attendant Doreen Welsh, who shepherded panicky passengers out of the rear of the aircraft, will headline the Wings fundraising event at 6 pm, Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Buffalo, Minn., municipal airport.

Wings of Mercy, Minnesota Inc.

Industry officials have praised both Harten and Welsh for their teamwork contributing to the "miracle" outcome of Flight 1549, where all 155 passengers and crew defied the odds and survived a crash landing into the river virtually without injury.

Controller Harten was cited for his calm demeanor, including the way he gave options to Sullenberger, how he cleared another airport for an emergency landing, how he cleared competing air traffic away, and how he did not overburden the flight crew by requesting unnecessary information.

Flight attendant Welsh cut her leg badly as she worked to calm passengers stuck in the back of the sinking plane. As one passenger tried to open a rear door to escape and water came rushing in, Welsh quickly shut the door preventing water from filling the cabin, and ordered the passenge
