United: someone gets dragged out.. Public outcry and stocks plummet..Southwest: someone dies.. Routine maintenance on blades and condolences.

I’m so glad they pulled her in and didn’t just let her get sucked out. Now she can have a proper burial. I know this doesn’t take away the pain but at least it provides closure.

To the family my condolences I can't even imagine how y'all must feel and what are going through we are all praying for all of you and to the beautiful mother taken too soon god speed looks like you will be missed by many and to the worthless lazy asshole that inspected the plane b4 it went up in the air I hope you didn't pass that engine on pure lazyness this surly can not be an oversight I'm not familiar with plane PM's but even on any machine in any industry PM's are performed daily b4 and after use to insure no down time or faults I'm sure there are way more strict Post Maintenance protocol in machines that fly in the air with passengers in it! You lazy stupid piece of shit.

I heard there was a man that got in front of the window and blocked it with his body but I didn't know about the woman until this one. Same video and the widow was the same. Strange that they didn't mention it.

What a horrible way to die. And that poor woman who should’ve sat in the window will forever be haunted by the “what if’s”....

Once the cabin pressure equalizes, no one else will be sucked out of the plane. It is a momentary thing. It will remain cold & things will be blowing around though.

Praying for this family! They are some strong children I couldn't handle losing my mom definitely not like this! I'm praying for their comfort and healing in their time of grief and moving forward and like the pastor said at my grand mothers funeral she didn't leave she just simply got a new address god bless everyone on that flight and those that tried to help her beautiful souls

A good person & a terrible loss. There is one good that has come from this tragedy as it was an avoidable accident. Airlines have been stretching the hours between maintenance programs to reduce cost & maximize their profitability. One fatal event,, totally shakes the Industry & enforces improvements ; her death, now makes a major crash less likely.
Mateese Rippy (12 days ago)
Heartbreaking!! So incredibly eerie because anyone could have chosen that seat by that particular window and it's almost like the movie final destination, only this lady didn't get to go home at the end 🤔 but then again, she did go home and she's at piece, no pain, no suffering 😟 Rest in paradise

What a horrible way to go. I can’t imagine trying to pull someone into a mid moving air plane having their entire life in your hand. We play all this money to fly these planes should be checked on a very frequent basis. Prayers for this family

It's too bad that a death of a person has to be the way that change is to be made. From the remarks of the pilot, even knows that those blades defect after certain amount of usage. It is a remarkable thing that those people were there for the deceased. She lived a good, blessed life. Now her family can receive compensation from their agony and the neglect of this airline. Those children will at least be set for life. God bless that family and all the survivors.

While they're at it they need to stop making Chemtrails at the same time! GEO Engineering the constant making of artificial clouds to block out the Sun! Watch YouTube! How to survive chemtrails! You will learn so much please pass it on! Tell insurance companies once they learn what's going on maybe they can stop the chemtrails! When you look up and you see clouds you think if they're made by Mother Nature think again watch the planes they leave these long tails that spread out like clouds! Things can make compensation and they're now making tails behind the back of their planes that turn into clouds there purposely trying to block out the Sun! Hopefully it's ruining the plane's engines!
