‘Almost everyone’ in a photo of Southwest’s emergency landing wore their oxygen masks ‘wrong,’ says a former flight attendant.
Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 suffered a major engine failure on Tuesday, forcing its pilot to make an emergency landing. Shrapnel reportedly pierced the airplane’s fuselage, blew out a window, and caused the cabin of the airplane to depressurize. The incident left one passenger dead.
Tammie Jo Shults, the pilot of the flight (who used to fly US Navy fighter jets), guided the Dallas-bound airplane to a safe landing in Philadelphia. Oxygen masks dropped from the cabin ceiling during the incident, according to a public Facebook post shared by Marty Martinez, a passenger on the flight.
