The preliminary findings by federal investigators revealed that an engine fan blade failed and that there was evidence of metal fatigue that caused an engine on the Boeing 737-7H4 to explode April 17 during its flight from New York to Dallas. The full investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board is expected to take a year or longer.
One woman, Jennifer Riordan, was partially sucked out of the aircraft before other passengers pulled her back inside. She later died of her injuries at a Philadelphia hospital. For the other 143 passengers and five crew members on board, the flight was a terror-filled nightmare with many frantically writing their final goodbyes to their loved ones fearing they would never see them again.
