A woman narrowly escaped losing her life after she was pulled out of an airplane due to the cabin depressurizing while in mid-air Tuesday.
An unidentified woman managed to survive despite nearly getting pulled out of a Southwest Airline’s airplane headed for Dallas, TX, NBC10 reported. The plane had departed LaGuardia Airport in N.Y. when a small piece of the airplane’s engine broke off and managed to break the window while at an altitude of approximately 32,000 ft. Despite the woman almost getting snatched from the plane, passengers fortunately pulled her back into the aircraft.
“One passenger, a woman, was partially … was drawn out towards the out of the plane … was pulled back in by other passengers,” Todd Baur, the father of a passenger on the airplane, told NBC2 in a phone interview.
“Someone on the plane had a heart attack, and it looks like an engine blew out then a window was blown open,” wrote Marty Martinez, a passenger on the flight in a Facebook post, according to the New York Post.
