A preliminary examination of the blown jet that set off a terrifying chain of events and left a businesswoman hanging half outside a shattered window showed evidence of "metal fatigue", according to the National Transportation Safety Board. Although Riordan was wearing a seatbelt, her body was partially sucked out the window soon after the explosion, according to The New York Times.

Texas rancher Tim McGinty, of Hillsboro, said Tuesday that he and Needum struggled to pull 43-year-old Jennifer Riordan back into the plane.

She was hauled inside by her fellow passengers nearby but she later died after sustaining critical head injuries. "Our hearts are heavy", the pair said.

"It's one of the more frustrating things of the job, you're standing in front of people trying to convey how they can save their lives in an emergency and they're texting, taking selfies, have their headphones in or they're already asleep!" "It was on the interior part of the fan blade, so not more than likely, it was certainly not detectable from looking at it from the outside", NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said.

Tuesday's emergency broke a string of eight straight years without a fatal accident involving a USA airliner.

In August 2016, Southwest Flight 3472, another Boeing 737 powered by a CFM56 engine, suffered an eerily similar failure, though no one was injured.

The engine of a Southwest Airlines plane on the runway at the Philadelphia International Airport after making an emergency landing on Tuesday. Last year, the FAA estimated that an order would cover 220 engines on USA airlines. Investigators found signs of metal fatigue.

Southwest Airlines Co clashed with engine-maker CFM over the timing of proposed inspections and with regulators over costs after a 2016 accident involving the airline that was caused by a fan blade separating, public documents showed.

The service, Flight 1380, was heading from New York City to Dallas when the engine failed, prompting the pilot to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

She was hit by shrapnel flying from the nearby engine, and a nearby passenger said she also smacked into the plane's fuselage.

"In this case, where you have a reasonably large-area hole which is the broken window, the velocity of the air moving through that hole is going to be, initially, extremely high". "Two wonderful men. they managed to get her back inside the plane, and we laid her down and we started CPR".

Capt Shults, a New Mexico native, graduated with university degrees in biology and agribusiness before joining the military.

That showed on Tuesday, as a picture of passengers in the plane following its engine failure show almost everybody wearing their oxygen masks improperly.

"I feel for her family". During the incident, he logged on to the in-flight Wi-Fi to send messages to his family.

Here's how to properly wear an airplane oxygen mask, should they ever deploy when you're on-board.

The airline expected to wrap up its inspection of the engines it was targeting in about 30 days.

Enormous chunks of the plane's engine casing and inner parts were discovered by gobsmacked locals in Jefferson Township, Penn Township and Bernville in the state of Pennsylvania.

The fatality occurred after one of the fan blades separated from the engine, sending debris through an aircraft window.

The airline opposed a recommendation by the engine manufacturer to require ultrasonic inspections within 12 months on certain fan blades like the one that snapped off in Tuesday's deadly accident, saying it needed more time to conduct the work.
