A Southwest plane made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after experiencing serious engine trouble Tuesday on a flight from New York to Dallas. Passengers reported that a woman was injured.
“Something is wrong with our plane! It appears we are going down!” passenger Marty Martinez said in a live-stream video as he breathed through an oxygen mask.
One of the windows was blown out and parts of an engine were ripped off, based on photos taken by passengers on Flight 1380 and people at the scene.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane landed “after the crew reported damage to one of the aircraft’s engines, as well as the fuselage and at least one window.” The Boeing 737-700 had 143 passengers and five crew members on board heading to Dallas Love Field, according to the airline.
