This is really bad, but it could have been worse.  The aircraft stopped 10-15 feet from the water.

Accident aside, it would be interesting to see a wrap-up of the response.  Many years ago I developed an emergency action plan for my company in Montego Bay, and the challenge was few resources to draw from.  In the end I knew I did the best I could with what I had to work with but I was glad we never had to use the plan.
