Needum, seated next to his father and son, turned back to see that oxygen masks had deployed in the cabin.

Speaking briefly about the emergency landing the plane would have to make in Philadelphia, she asked matter-of-factly: "Could you have the medical meet us there on the runway as well?" He turned to his wife, Stephanie.

She died from blunt impact trauma of the head, neck and torso, a spokesman for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health said. "I am trained for emergency situations, and that is exactly what it was".

"I feel for her family", Mr Needum said.

Ms Macken was relieved when Tim McGinty and Andrew Needum helped pull the woman back into the aircraft.

"Peggy" is Peggy Phillips, a retired nurse, who quickly began an arduous, 20-minute, CPR regimen on Riordan, aided by Needum.

The manufacturer of the sort of motor that detonated amid a Southwest Airlines flight prior this week, killing a traveler, called for more stringent testing of the motor's fan cutting edges inside three weeks, it said Friday. We didn't know what was going on, ' Mackey told KTVQ. The men pulled Riordan's body back into the aircraft after she was almost sucked out. Miraculously, the other 136 passengers were able to walk away unhurt.

Air traffic control responded: "Injured passengers, OK".

"No, it's not on fire, but part of it is missing".

Mackey told KTVQ that she held onto Riordan and tried to keep her inside the plane.

The statement echoes Mrs. Riordan's own advice from what she said in 2015 after she was presented the Bill Daniels Award for Ethical Young Leadership by the Samaritan Counseling Ethics in Business Awards.

About 20 minutes after the flight departed from NY, passengers say they heard what sounded like explosions. In that earlier case, a fan blade fractured and broke loose, bouncing in front of the engine's protective cover and then striking the plane, causing it to lose pressure.

The National Transportation Safety Board believes one of the engine fan blades snapped.

The cause of the engine failure is still being investigated by the NTSB, but metal fatigue ― which can cause cracks and other weaknesses that are not visible to the naked eye ― has been suspected as a factor. "I wouldn't let you by without a hug'".

At times, Needum cried as he talked about Riordan.

When the two couldn't save Riordan, Mackey said, they just waited with her. "I just pray that they find comfort, that they find healing whatever that may be and however they seek it". "She provided encouragement to everyone with whom she came in contact", the school said. "She's a very confident person".
