A Southwest Airlines passenger plane made an emergency landing Tuesday after an engine exploded and broke a window that partially sucked a woman out of the plane.

WACU reported that a piece of engine shrapnel flew into and broke a passenger window, creating an opening that began sucking a female passenger out of the plane. The woman had to be pulled back in by other passengers.

The Boeing 737-700 jet was carrying 143 passengers and five crew members aboard and was traveling from New York to Dallas when the plane made its emergency landing in Philadelphia.


Fox 29 reports that ten people were injured including one passenger that was sent to the hospital in critical condition with head trauma.
