Congratulations to the quick-thinking pilots who dumped fuel in order to minimize the fiery explosion on impact. That move likely saved lives. Speedy recovery to all those who were injured in this horrible accident.

TMZ why are you reporting this? Was there a movie or pop star involved? If not I suggest leaving this type of journalism to the pros like CNN or Headline News... Just sayin.
