With family OK, firefighter moved to help woman — The Latest

The National Transportation Safety Board is onsite inspecting a Southwest airline plane after engine failure caused the plane to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport

Here's what we know about Jennifer Riordan, the woman who died on a Southwest flight

The Albuquerque, New Mexico, woman was killed. "The yellow cup goes around your mouth and nose".

We've brought a team of specialists with specialty in power plants, airworthiness to look at the airworthiness of the aircraft itself, power plants will of course be looking at the engine.

Robert Sumwalt is chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.

The regulator said late on Wednesday it plans to finalize the air-worthiness directive within the next two weeks. The seven other victims suffered minor injuries.

Last year, the engine maker and the Federal Aviation Administration instructed airlines to make ultrasonic inspections of the fan blades of engines like those on the Southwest jet.

While Sumwalt has said that it is too early to make a direct comparison, the incident was reminiscent of the uncontained engine failure on a Southwest 737-700 on Aug. 27, 2016, that forced pilots to divert to Pensacola International Airport, Florida, during a flight from New Orleans to Orlando.

Sumwalt said the fan blade, after suffering metal fatigue where it attached to the engine hub, has a second fracture about halfway along its length.

"In that situation the seatbelt sign was turned on and there was still a line of people for the bathroom - they knew they shouldn't be out of their seats", he says. The incident resulted in the death of a passenger, which was the first fatality on a US passenger airline in more than nine years. For example, if you inadvertently compared lower risk firms with LUV, then investors would naturally value LUV at a lower price since it is a riskier investment. It appears we are going down! Passenger Amanda Bourman posted, "The pilot, Tammy Jo, was amazing!"

Southwest declined to provide the plane's maintenance records to The Associated Press, but a spokeswoman said that the failed engine had experienced no unscheduled maintenance in the last 60 days. Approximately 20 minutes after takeoff as the aircraft was passing through approximately 32,500 feet, multiple aural alerts and warnings sounded in the cockpit.

Friends at Shults' church in Boerne, Texas said Wednesday they were not surprised after listening to the recording and reading media reports about her actions. This is because the inside of the plane has been pressurized.

It is not clear how many planes will be affected. Attorneys say this could weigh against potential defendants if a case reached a jury.

He also strongly believes that alcohol should be banned in order to keep passengers safe and stop their judgement being clouded.

Former flight attendants said that Flight 1380 underscored the importance of the safety instructions delivered to passengers as the planes taxi to the runway. $1,886 worth of stock was sold by BIGGINS J VERONICA on Tuesday, October 17. The brokerage currently has an overweight rating on the airline's stock.

"While the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) continues its investigation as to the circumstances surrounding the accident, our primary focus and commitment is to assist you in every way possible", Southwest said in a copy of a letter obtained by ABC News.

He told the BBC that when he saw the footage from the flight, the masks were the first thing he noticed. The pilot contacted air traffic control and quickly made plans for an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport.
