Our Sincere Condolences To Miss Riordan's Family
Passengers describe the horrifying incident as a piece of shrapnel from the engine shattered the window, leading to drop in pressure drastically and almost sucking out the woman. A registered nurse who was on the plane at the time said, "The window had broken and the negative pressure had pulled her outside the plane partially. Two wonderful men ... they managed to get her back inside the plane, and we laid her down and we started CPR."
Several passengers posted videos of the accidents where a state of panic could be observed as passengers could be seen grabbing oxygen masks and screaming as the plane was jolting. One passenger Marty Martinez who logged onto Facebook live at the time of the incident told media, "I thought, these are my last few moments on Earth and I want people to know what happened. All I could think of in that moment was, I need to communicate with my loved ones."
