Only a few days after passengers relayed their harrowing ordeal when a Southwest Airways flight tried to land in New Orleans throughout extreme climate, one other flight from the identical airline needed to make an emergency touchdown in Philadelphia after one of many engines exploded mid-flight. To make issues worse, NBC Philadelphia is reporting passenger was almost sucked out of a window after shrapnel from the decimated engine broke it. “One passenger, a girl, was partially… was drawn out in the direction of the out of the airplane… was pulled again in by different passengers,” mentioned Todd Baur, the daddy of one other passenger.

Baur added that the girl who was nearly sucked out of the airplane has since been rushed to a close-by hospital. In the meantime, different photographs and movies from those that had been onboard the flight have been making the rounds on social media. This contains “grainy footage” from passenger Marty Martinez, whose posed a Fb dwell video of himself and others donning oxygen masks. “One thing is improper with our airplane! It seems we’re happening! Emergency touchdown!! Southwest flight from NYC to Dallas!!” he wrote, including: “We’re bracing for touchdown!!”

Talking with CBS Information after the airplane landed, Martinez mentioned, “Rapidly, we hear an explosion and are available to search out out that the engine exploded on the left aspect of the airplane. That explosion induced one of many home windows to blow up.”
