If you want an example of just how fast our current technology has made reporting breaking news, you'd need look no farther than this plane crash in New York.

Within mere moments of the incident, Twitter updates -- replete with images from the scene -- began popping up all over.

One of the most immediately compelling was submitted by Twitter-user @jkrums, who snapped this photo of the passengers awaiting rescue after the crash.

Shortly after this image was posted, the man responsible was interviewed live on MSNBC.

Talk about a quick turnaround.
