— A Beaver County flight attendant aboard US Airways Flight 1549 hasn’t returned to work or made any plans to. Doreen Welsh of Economy, who suffered a deep cut on her left leg during the flight’s emergency splash landing and evacuation, said she is recovering physically and emotionally. She said it hurts to be on her feet for extended periods of time, a necessity for a flight attendant.

“I’m not putting any timetable on it,” Welsh, 59, said about a potential return to her job of nearly 40 years.
