Depressurisation is believed to have caused the female passenger to be partially sucked through window before others intervened on Southwest Airlines flight 1380

One person has died after a woman aboard a Southwest Airlines flight in the US was reportedly ‘sucked through the plane window’ during a mid-flight emergency.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairman Robert Sumwalt confirmed the fatality during a press conference this afternoon.

The left engine on flight 1380, which was carrying 144 passengers and five crew members, is believed to have failed at 32,000 feet, causing shrapnel to fly off and hit the side of the plane, according to reports.
