Co-Pilot Nearly Sucked Out Of Plane After Cockpit Window Shattered

This is What's Trending Today....

A co-pilot of Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 was sucked halfway out of the cockpit window before managing to return to his seat, Chinese state media reported.

A JetBlue plane made an emergency landing in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. after the cockpit window cracked.

Now, Liu is being called a hero in China. "The plane was shaking so hard I could not read the gauges", said Captain Chaunjian of the accident.

The cockpit experienced a sudden loss of pressure and drop in temperature and when he looked over, the cockpit's right windshield was gone.

In an interview with the Chengdu Business News, Captain Liu Chuanjian explained that after he heard the windshield crack, he turned to his co-pilot to see "half his body suspended out of the window".

The co-pilot was wearing his seatbelt. Back in 1990, pilot Tim Lancaster was sucked out of the cockpit window of a British Airways flight to Malaga, Spain, after an explosion knocked out the windscreen.

On Monday firefighters in Switzerland said a fatal accident involving a Tesla may have set off a fire in the car's battery. The 18 year-old driver slammed into a concrete wall, and the vehicle burst into flames, trapping the occupants inside.

Southwest passenger Jennifer Riordan died as a result of injuries she suffered in that April 17 flight. One other employee was injured in the incident. The Airbus A319 from Chongquing to Llaha was at an altitude of 30,000 when the windshield burst.

"The crew were serving us breakfast when the aircraft began to shake". "The oxygen masks dropped ..."

"I'm still nervous. I don't dare to take an airplane anymore. But I'm also happy I had a narrow escape".

Even with all of that going on, the plane was able to land safely in another part of China after the break. On the Chinese site Sina Weibo, users are writing messages with the hashtag #ChinaHeroPilot.

The harrowing incident comes almost a month after a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight from NY died after shrapnel from a blown engine smashed the window, forcing out part of her body as other passengers pulled her back in.

Fox News said that the Sichuan Airlines incident is the sixth time in one month where there have been airline window problems.

It comes two months after a woman died after being partially sucked out of the window of a USA passenger plane, whose engine had exploded in mid-air.
