Southwest flight victim's death attributed to impact trauma

Ryan Gaydos is an editor for Fox News.

"Jennifer Riordan has passed away as a result of previously reported events on Southwest Airlines flight #1380".

An engine on a Southwest jet exploded over Pennsylvania on Tuesday, and debris hit the plane. Although Riordan was wearing a seatbelt, her body was partially sucked out the window soon after the explosion, according to The New York Times.

GE's aviation unit is widely seen as one of its crown jewels, even as the troubled industrial giant confronts challenges in other segments ranging from power to transportation.

But Katya said she ignored the safety talk "because I've seen it LITERALLY hundreds of times".

On Wednesday, the FAA said it will require inspections of fan blades on CFM56-7B engines after they reach a certain number of takeoffs and landings.

Passenger Andrew Needum, a Texas firefighter, said Thursday that he was helping his family and other passengers with their oxygen masks when he heard a commotion behind him. It's not just a gesture of goodwill - Southwest is likely hoping the funds will persuade some upset passengers to not pursue further legal action against them.

Passengers dragged her back inside, but she died at a Philadelphia hospital after the plane made an emergency landing with hero Capt. Tammie Jo Shults, a former Navy flier, at the controls.

Every commercial plane in the sky is insured for anywhere from $1.85 billion to $2.1 billion.

At least three told CNN they got a $5,000 check and a letter from Southwest. A failure in its left turbofan engine caused the death of one passenger and multiple other injuries. "But foremost, she is the bedrock of our family".

Ladd Sanger, an aviation lawyer with Slack Davis Sanger in Dallas, tells MONEY that survivors from Flight 1380 may request damages to cover medical expenses, time off work, or therapy.

"I didn't know if we were going to be running into a building. In Albuquerque, that was Jennifer Riordan", Avitia wrote in online post. The agency has said the AD will be issued within the next two weeks and inspections are expected to take about two hours each.

It is not clear how many planes will be affected. The FAA said on Wednesday it would finalize the airworthiness directive it had proposed in August within two weeks. However, the engine's manufacturer and European officials had called for careful inspections several months earlier. Check flight status with your airline. It will not be clear until the FAA issues its rule how many will need inspections.

Investigators say a broken rotor blade set off the engine failure. The force was enough to break a window and send shrapnel into the aircraft.

Southwest did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment and an answering machine in its press office referred reporters to the company's website for all accident queries.

"Everybody was going crazy, and yelling and screaming", Martinez said. As of December 31, 2017, the company operated a total of 706 Boeing 737 aircraft; and served 100 destinations in 40 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as 10 near-international countries, including Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Aruba, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Belize, Cuba, the Cayman Islands, Turks, and Chaos.
