One Week After His Wife’s Tragic Death Aboard A Southwest Flight Jennifer Riordan’s Husband Speaks Out

One person was killed and seven others sustained minor injuries on a Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas when an engine exploded in midair last Tuesday, shattering a window that passengers said partially sucked a woman out of the aircraft, New York Times reported.

According to CBS News, Family and friends gathered Sunday to mourn an Albuquerque bank executive who died after the Southwest Airlines plane she was on blew an engine in midair. Nearly a thousand people attended the evening service for Jennifer Riordan — a beloved member of the community, a wife, and mother of two.

Lt. Gov. John Sanchez presented Michael Riordan with a flag that was flown at half-staff at New Mexico’s Capitol in Jennifer Riordan’s memory.

“She was considered a friend, colleague, and pillar of the community and will be forever missed,” Sanchez told Fox 5 DC.

The community leader and mother of two had been heading home from a business trip Tuesday on a flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport bound for Dallas.

Now for the first time, Jennifer’s husband Michael is speaking out publicly.

As Written By NBC:

National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt said multiple audible alarms went off in the cockpit around 20 minutes after takeoff as the aircraft was at around 32,500 feet of altitude. Crew members reported an engine fire and said they were initiating an emergency descent.

Passengers described a terrifying experience that started when a piece of the engine apparently flew into a window mid-flight, shattering it and depressurizing the plane. A woman was then partly sucked out of the broken window, passengers said.

“The window had gone out there,” passenger Eric Zilbert said. “There were several heroic gentlemen who pulled her back through the window and administered CPR.”

Sadly they were unable to revive Mrs.Riordan. The tragedy led to a massive, and possibly over-due, investigation into the flight equipment.
