President Obama this morning issued a statement of sorrow, sending his prayers to the families and friends of the victims of the crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark, N.J., which killed 49 when it slammed into a suburban Buffalo, N.Y., house early this morning:
Michelle and I are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic accident outside of Buffalo last night. Our hearts go out to the families and friends who lost loved ones. I want to thank the brave first responders who arrived immediately to try and save lives and who are continuing to ensure the safety of everyone in the area. We pray for all those who have been touched by this terrible tragedy to find peace and comfort in the hard days ahead.
