WOW. Awfully scary stuff. A Southwest Arlines jet coming for NY headed to Dallas, made an emergency landing in Philly this morning, after the engine blew up during the flight.
According to Philly.com:
Before the plane landed, a passenger, Marty Martinez, posted on Facebook: “Something is wrong with our plane! It appears we are going down! Emergency landing!! Southwest flight from NYC to Dallas!!”
Martinez reported that a woman on the plane apparently was injured and that a window blew open.
Shrapnel reportedly pierced the body of the aircraft and injured at least one person. There is no word yet on the person’s condition.
