Southwest Flight 1380 was headed from NYC to Dallas, when one engine blew up and the plane made an emergency landing in PHL.
Some photos show that the window by the engine was blown out, and some reports say there was blood everywhere, and the woman sitting near the window was partially almost sucked out of the window.
She was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Praying she's okay!
More details are developing by the second. From what reports say other than the engine blowing up, it was a smooth and fairly normal landing. Everyone is praising the pilots and crew.
One passenger did go live on Facebook, and thought he was saying his goodbyes.
