The father, Todd Baur, said that a female passenger was partially sucked out of the plane when the window imploded.

“One passenger, a woman, was partially … was drawn out towards the out of the plane … was pulled back in by other passengers,” he said in a phone interview with NBC10.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Dallas-bound Boeing 737-700 made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday after taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City. There were 149 people onboard.

“There is a hole in the side of the aircraft, also,” the aircraft controller relayed to firefighters at the airport.

Passengers shared photos of an engine with major damage. The engine inlet appears to be shredded with metal bent outward.
