You should be able to trust your pilot, shouldn't you?

So, we're flying to the US and about 30 seconds before we were due to land, (obviously we're travelling extremely fast at this point) an automated message comes over the speaker
saying:
"WARNING. WARNING. PLEASE TAKE THE EVASIVE MANEUVER AND COVER YOUR HEADS. PREPARE FOR A CRASH LANDING."

Naturally, I was terrified at this point as we're about 50 ft from the ground, travelling at huge speed and everyone thought we were going to crash.
After a short time of uncertainty, another automated message says

"PREPARE FOR A WATER LANDING."

Now, at this point we're about 20ft above the run way and we all just looked out the window, at the solid ground all kind of confused.
As we touch down the pilot apologises and explains he pressed the wrong button.

I thought I was going to die.

  3. That is awesomely funny. Why do they have buttons for automated warning messages like that? Seems the only reason would be to cause accidents like this.
