And as for the time frame...It is now being reported the everyone made 
it off the plane with in the 90 seconds that is the desired exit time 
for a crash...and probably within a minute there were enough people off 
so the 200 figure would not be posible...I still think that part should 
have been left out...The person reporting obvisouly was not a good 
witness to be reporting such detail....
