It was one of these pieces of shrapnel which killed Jennifer Riordan, 43, who was almost sucked out of the plane after the window next to her smashed from the impact.

A nurse answered a call for help and tried to do CPR.

NTSB investigators examine the wreckage of the engine on the Southwest Airlines plane that exploded mid flight. It said that any fan blades that failed the inspection would have to be replaced.

Jennifer Riordan died aboard a Southwest Airlines flight. "We're stunned. My heart breaks for Michael", Marianne Riordan said. "We will do all that we can to support them during this very hard time".

The 43-year-old mother of two was a banking executive for Wells Fargo and was in NY for business.

"As the plane is going down, I am literally purchasing internet just so I can get some kind of communication to the outside world", he said.

Passenger Alfred Tumlinson told WPVI: "She has nerves of steel". "On behalf of the Southwest family, I want to extend my deepest sympathies for the family and the loved ones of our deceased customer", Kelly said. But I am. I am. She said that even though Jennifer did not survive, his actions mean a great deal to her family.

The plane, a Boeing 737 was headed from NY to Dallas with 149 people aboard, made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

"Shrapnel hit the window causing a serious injury".

Passengers and flight attendants struggled to drag Riordan back into the aircraft, he said.

IMF Keeps India Growth Forecast Unchanged At 7.4% For FY19
China is expected to expand 6.6 percent and 6.4 percent, while India should rise 7.4 percent and 7.8 percent. China's growth rate is projected to be be 6.6 percent this year and slide to 6.4 percent next year.

Often the damage is confined to the engine and its casing, but on occasions more widespread damage occurs.

The injured woman's arms and body were sucked toward the opening in the plane, Martinez recalled in a phone interview. And meanwhile, there was blood all over this man's hands.

She was one of the first female fighter pilots in the US Navy and flew F-18 jets which fought in the Gulf and Iraq War.

'I have always been concerned about stuff happening with aircrafts flying so close to where we live - we live in a flight zone - but now I know there is a need to be concerned, ' Alicia Miller of Bernville, PA, said. United Airlines executives said Wednesday that they had begun inspecting some of their planes.

"Trying to contact loved ones is one thing, but to morbidly video and take pictures to post publicly is completely disgusting". "That was just chaos all around". The metal fatigue would not have been observable by looking at the engine from the outside, Sumwalt said. "And rather than put on my oxygen mask, I reached for my laptop in an effort to buy WiFi as the plane was going down".

The photo, by passenger Marty Martinez, shows several passengers using the masks to only cover their mouths, despite safety instructions saying people should use the masks to cover their nose and mouth.

Seven other passengers were slightly injured. They recovered the airplane's cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder. The flight data recorder showed the plane was at 32,500 feet when the engine failed about 20 minutes into the flight. CFM International is a joint venture of General Electric and France's Safran. A year ago the FAA issued an airworthiness directive on the CFM56-7B version that would have required inspection of the fan blades.

"Everybody stood strong", he said.
