Airliner Makes Emergency Landing With Blown Engine

CBS News reports:

A Southwest Airlines plane made an emergency landing at Philadelphia’s airport with what appears to be a damaged engine on Tuesday. Passengers walked off the plane on the tarmac at the airport.

Passenger Marty Martinez did a brief Facebook Live posting with the caption “Something is wrong with our plane! It appears we are going down! Emergency landing!! Southwest flight from NYC to Dallas!!” He said a window exploded mid-air and posted a photo of a damaged window and emergency oxygen masks dangling down.

Martinez told CBSN that he thought he was recording his “last moments.” He told CBSN there was “blood everywhere” on the plane. News helicopter footage showed damage to the left engine of the plane and the tarmac covered on foam from fire crews.
