The air traffic controller responded with seeming disbelief: "Um, I'm sorry, you said there was a hole and somebody went out?".

"Could you have the medical meet us there on the runway as well".

The dead woman was identified as Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo bank executive and mother of two from Albuquerque, N.M. The seven others suffered minor injuries.

Asked if the plane was on fire, she said: 'Not on fire but part of it is missing.

"There is something going on with these engines", he said, "and the statistical likelihood of additional failures exists".

The investigation into a deadly engine failure on a Southwest jet is focusing on whether wear and tear caused a fan blade to snap off, triggering a catastrophic chain of events that killed a passenger and broke a string of eight years without a fatal accident involving a US airliner.

About 20 minutes after the flight departed from NY, passengers say they heard what sounded like explosions.

Investigators were called to the three sites, all of which fell within the miracle plane's flightpath after it was forced into a frenetic emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport. But foremost, she is the bedrock of our family. This is a true American hero.

Alfred Tumlinson was traveling with his wife back to Corpus Christi, Texas, after attending a Texas Farm Bureau gala in New York City.

Many social media users defended Martinez's use of Facebook Live, but some said he violated passengers' privacy and sought cheap fame. Investigators are now working to understand how the window came out of the plane. Shults declined to comment when reached by The Post.

Inside the cockpit, pilot Tammie Jo Shults calmly communicated the severity of the situation. "Just save us from this, '" said Timothy C Bourman, 36, a pastor from Queens who was on his way to a church retreat in San Antonio. She was a young person, full of life in the prime of her life.

Registered school nurse Peggy Phillips was the one doing compressions inside the plane and told ABC: "The window had broken and the suction, the negative pressure, had pulled her outside the plane partially".

Several leaders and government officials in New Mexico were mourning Riordan's death. She had flown supersonic F/A-18 Hornets as one of the Navy's first female pilots at a time when women were still barred from combat duty, before leaving active service in 1993. "People are running on half asleep", she said. Shults, a Navy veteran and one of the first female fighter pilots in the USA military, was at the controls when the jet landed, according to her husband, Dean Shults.

"Some people grow up around aviation".

He reportedly wrote: "I want you to know that I love you all and thank you for all you've done". She walked through the aisle and talked with passengers to make sure they were OK after the aircraft touched down. A retired colonel started the class by asking Shults, the only girl in attendance, "if I was lost".

'I just noticed that something don't belong, like a swimming pool up here, little baby swimming pool. When she was finally safe inside, she was seriously injured and unconscious. She later left to fly the A-7 Corsair in Lemoore, California.

While she never saw combat, she became an instructor and acted as an "aggressor pilot" in war games.

"She has nerves of steel, that lady", one passenger said. "Women were new to the Hornet community, and already there were signs of growing pains".
