This from a friend who got the pics from the crane operator.
Note that only one engine was sheered off, not both. And considering that landing in water is like landing on concrete, there is not a whole lotta damage to the Airbus fuselage. This musta been one great spash landing. These photos were taken by the crane operator lifting the Airbus out of the Hudson River. They lifted the airliner out of the Hudson yesterday.
