Airline passengers aboard a Southwest Airlines jet whose engine exploded have told of the horror moment a mum-of-two was sucked out of the window at 32,000ft. Banking executive Jennifer Riordan suffered fatal head injuries after the jet exploded on Southwest flight 1380 from New York to Dallas.Riordan, who was on her way home to Albuquerque, New Mexico, was pulled back inside by heroic passengers and crew after the aircraft was pierced by shrapnel. Marty Martinez, who live-streamed the emergency landing from two rows behind her, said “there was blood everywhere”. He said passengers desperately tried to plug the hole using their jackets but they were convinced they would die. Martinez began recording a final Facebook Live video for his loved ones while his colleague next to him wrote a goodbye note to his wife and unborn child.He told the media that: “Thirty minutes into the flight, it was just a standard flight, then all of a sudden there’s this loud explosion. And it – like within a span of five seconds, all of the – all of the oxygen masks deployed. “Just a few seconds later, another explosion happened, and it was the window, that just completely exploded. And as you can imagine, everybody was going crazy, and yelling and screaming.And as this was all happening, you looked at the flight attendants, their reaction – and it seemed like, some of them were starting to cry. We knew that we were in a really bad place.” Riordan’s heartbroken husband Michael, and their two young children, described her as “the bedrock of our family”.A family statement read: “Jennifer’s vibrancy, passion and love infused our community and reached across our country. Her impact on everything and everyone she touched can never be fully measured. She and Mike wrote a love story unlike any other. Her beauty and love is evident through her children.” It added: “In her memory – please remember to always be kind, loving, caring, and sharing.” Annunciation Catholic School, where her children attend, confirmed the tragedy in an email to parents saying the family “needs all the prayers we can offer”.Pilot Tammie Jo Shults is being hailed a hero for safely landing the plane with 143 passengers and five crew on board at Philadelphia. After the mid-air blast tore a gaping hole in the aircraft’s side, she told shocked air traffic controllers “there’s a hole and uh… someone went out.” The Boeing 737  had just departed New York’s LaGuardia Airport en-route to Dallas when the left engine exploded and ruptured metal flew towards a window.It was flying over east Pennsylvania with 143 passengers and five members of crew on board when the left engine suddenly exploded mid air. Shults immediately diverted towards Philadelphia to make an emergency landing and photos show what appears to be jet fuel, oozing from the passenger plane onto the tarmac. According to other passengers on the plane, the shrapnel pierced a window next to the female passenger  as the aircraft made its descent.Photo Credit: Getty
