A Southwest Airlines flight from Chicago to Newark, New Jersey, diverted to Cleveland on Wednesday because of a cracked airplane window. No injures were reported, the airline said.
fan blade broke off an engine of a Southwest Boeing 737-700, sending shrapnel flying that punctured the fuselage as the plane was flying above 30,000 feet. A passenger was partially sucked out of the window and died, marking the first fatality of a passenger aboard a U.S. airline since 2009.
The pilot of Flight 1380 made a safe emergency landing in Philadelphia, bringing the plane down quickly after the cabin depressurized.
