Woman sucked from Southwest Airlines plane died of 'blunt trauma', examiner says

Southwest Airlines Passenger Dies After 'Engine Failure' Leads To Woman Being Partially Sucked Out Of Window!

Fellow passengers were able to pull her back inside but she died of her injuries.

The death was ruled an accident, spokesman Jim Garrow said.

United States aviation authorities investigating a deadly midair explosion of a Southwest Airlines jet engine say one of its fan blades had snapped off due to metal fatigue.

In response, the European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) issued a directive requiring operators of the planes to inspect specific fan blades on the CFM56-7, an engine used in some Boeing 737-700 planes, by the end of 2019.

Demetros, who turned 55 Tuesday, was one of 149 people on board the Southwest Airlines flight when an engine blew at 32,000 feet, smashing a window and causing a woman to be partially sucked out.

In a joint statement released late Wednesday, Shults and her co-pilot expressed "appreciation for the outpouring of support", adding "we all feel we were simply doing our jobs".

As for her son Isaiah's response to her injuries, Carrie said, "I was anxious he would be scared of me". In a statement, Carrie says, "At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever.

The entire incident, he said, lasted 22 minutes. The board said its preliminary examination found evidence of metal fatigue where the blade separated from the hub.

The CFM56-7B engine is in use on more than 8,000 Boeing 737 planes worldwide, the manufacturer says.

"We want to very carefully understand what was the result of this problem, and as I mentioned a few minutes ago, I'm very concerned about this particular event", Sumwalt said at the news conference at the Philadelphia airport.

Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said that the failed engine had reached 40,000 cycles and that it had been overhauled, as is routine, after reaching 30,000 cycles. "It was on the interior part of the fan blade, so not more than likely, it was certainly not detectable from looking at it from the outside", NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said.

Pieces of the plane were found in rural Pennsylvania by investigators who tracked them on radar.

Investigators' initial findings suggest a fan blade snapped off as the jet flew at cruising altitude. "We're stunned. My heart breaks for Michael", Marianne Riordan said.

Shire shares soar as possible takeover tussle looms
The first bid valued Shire at £41 billion, and would see Shire shareholders owning around 50% of the enlarged Takeda. The company revealed that it received three conditional proposals from Takeda on March 29, April 11 and April 13.

This new plan will require ultrasonic inspections of fan blades after a certain number of take-offs and landings.

Though incredibly unlikely (said window was smashed by shrapnel from an exploding engine), it has raised anxious questions about how such a horrendous scenario can unfold. "Another wrote, "(She) came back to speak to each of us personally. The woman, Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo bank executive and mother of two from Albuquerque, N.M., later died.

Photos and video captured by passengers from inside the cabin and posted on social networks showed significant damage caused to the plane, a part of the covering from its left engine entirely ripped off and a shattered window.

Passenger Marty Martinez chose to broadcast live from the plane on Facebook amid the chaos.

She said: "If you can possibly imagine going through the window of an airplane at about 600mph, and hitting either the fuselage or the wing with your body, with your face, then I think I can probably tell you there was significant trauma".

The plane was flying at 32,500 feet Tuesday morning as passengers settled in for the almost four-hour flight. It said that CFM had sent a service bulletin recommending inspections, leading regulators to make the directive. Engine failures like this should not occur obviously. The investigation is expected to take 12 to 15 months.

The Moto E5 Plus has the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio, which means you get a taller display, able to fit more information vertically. Don't get fooled, though, there's still just a single camera back there - the second circle below it is the LED flash.

The NTSB will compare this incident with a 2016 Southwest engine failure under similar circumstances.
