We are still on the plane and they are trying to revive a woman on the plane.”An unconfirmed report stated the cabin depressurized when a piece of the engine broke a window, and that a woman was partially sucked out the window.

Fire department officials told local media one person was taken to the hospital.Photos shared later by Martinez and other passengers showed apparent damage to one of the plane’s engines.Southwest Airlines issued a statement saying passengers and crew were being transported to the terminal in Philadelphia International Airport, and that they were gathering more information.
