Chicago Reader. Amazing photos.
Wired. Well worth a read, and far more interesting than the clickbait headline, which is deceptive.

FT. Unsettling, beyond LaGuardia’s “hellishly shabby facilities.”
WaPo. If “… takes a bizarre turn….” isn’t in there, it should be.

WSJ. A riveting example of what can happen when a society mobilizes. As far as the rescue itself goes, hat tip to alert reader vlade on July 4:
…I’d give them full-face masks, tape those on, and immobilise them, so that even if they do panic, they can’t do anything except hyperventilating (ideally, I’d get them some relaxant drugs, but you never know what that + having oxygen under pressure will do.. And you don’t know when that will wear off either). Then drag them the two miles with a rescuer helping along + monitoring air supply.
Forget ‘dive training’.
I’ve helpfully numbered the points that correspond to what the rescuers actually did, as shown in the Wall Street Journal article. The NC commentariat is the best commentariat.
