A Southwest Airlines flight traveling from New York to Dallas had to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia on Tuesday after an engine failed, causing a women to nearly be "sucked out" of a broken window, according to NBC Philadelphia.
Shortly after Southwest Flight 1380 departed LaGuardia Airport, the plane's left engine reportedly failed, sending shrapnel flying into the fuselage and breaking a window. Upon the window shattering, the plane rapidly depressurized at an altitude of 32,500 feet. A woman was nearly sucked out of the window but was pulled back by other passengers, according to a passenger's father-in-law, who was given information by his daughter onboard the flight, per the report.
Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon, NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said one passenger onboard the plane died following the incident. Seven other passengers were treated on the scene for minor injuries, according to a report by CNN. Sumwalt says investigators are currently classifying the incident as an "engine failure."
