Southwest dilemma: Protect child or try to save victim

Southwest Airline crash Southwest Pilot (A Woman!) Calmly Guides Aircraft to Emergency Landing After Engine Exploded and Passenger was Nearly Sucked Out of Window
Preston Stone | 22 April, 2018, 18:20

Investigators say a fan blade snapped off as the plane cruised at 500 miles per hour high above Pennsylvania.

A 2016 Southwest flight from New Orleans to Orlando lost an engine after a fan blade gave out.

On Tuesday morning, pilot Tammie Jo Shults miraculously saved 148 lives by successfully completing an emergency landing at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Mrs. Riordan, a Wells Fargo executive from New Mexico, was a "thoughtful leader who has always been a part of the fabric of our community", said Tim Keller, the mayor of Albuquerque.

While most go without complication, Tuesday's Southwest Flight 1380 was not that lucky.

The "pop" he heard was likely the window shattering in Row 14 after an engine malfunction shot pieces of metal shrapnel into the plane.

"They had a great marriage", Gerard said.

One other takeaway from this nightmare in the sky was that the pilot who calmly landed the plane quickly and safely with one engine missing was a woman.

An anonymous passenger told People, "I saw some passengers unbuckling and everyone crowding over this one aisle and the flight attendants run over and we see people lunging over people - it was just madness".

The plane from NY to Dallas landed in Philadelphia.

"She had two kids and a loving husband and community around her that loved her", he said.

The twin-engine Boeing 737 that left NY with 149 people board was hit by shrapnel that smashed a window, killing a passenger and injuring seven others.

"That's just part of who we are", she said.

When asked if there was evidence of foreign involvement in the killing, he said: "We want to ensure a complete probe". He had lived there with his family for the past eight years and was an imam at an area mosque.

Friend Racheal Russo said Shults "loved" her military career and says she learned by overcoming obstacles things as a woman in a male-dominated field.

Texas firefighter Andrew Needum and fellow passenger Tim McGinty tried to pull Jennifer Riordan inside the plane after she was sucked out of her window when the plane suffered an engine failure and a window exploded.

Tim McGinty told reporters late Tuesday that he helped his wife and a friend put on their oxygen masks before he realized the woman sitting in the row in front of him was in trouble on the Southwest Airlines plane from NY to Dallas that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia. And the little girl next to me also tried to pull with me, and we tried to pull her back in, and we couldn't.

A piece of the engine from the stricken Southwest Airlines jet that set off a terrifying chain of events and killed a businesswoman was found in the Bernville area of Berks County.

FBI investigators photographed the wide panel found in Bernville, near where the engine is believed to have failed, according to a Reading Eagle reporter. Kelly said, "There is no information that there were any issues with the airplane or the engines".

She was returning from a business trip in NY when the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia after its engine exploded in midair and shrapnel hit the plane, breaking the window beside her.

Anyone who finds a piece of the wreckage from the engine is asked to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Allentown at 610-433-6488. "Her beauty and love is evident through her children", and the statement asked that in her memory people do not forget to "always be kind, loving, caring and sharing".

Tragically, passenger Jennifer Riordan was pulled halfway out of the broken window by force.

Nurse Peggy Phillips rushed to the woman's aide. "Whatever she was thinking, whatever she was feeling", said Mackey. I did what needed to be done, what any registered nurse would do, " she recalled.

Needum then performed CPR, but unfortunately her injuries were fatal.

This was the second mid-air engine accident on a Southwest plane in the last two years.

A year ago, however, both CFM and the FAA asked companies to do ultrasonic scans on the engines' fan blades. The blade was separated at the point where it would come into the hub and there was evidence of metal fatigue.

As a precaution, Southwest said it will inspect similar engines in its fleet over the next 30 days.
