Plane engine explodes; passenger "partially sucked out"


A flight from New York to Texas suffered a MAJOR malfunction today. Shortly after departing LaGuardia airport, one of the plane's engine's exploded, and shrapnel from the explosion broke a window, "partially sucking a passenger out." Other passengers pulled the terrified woman to safety. She experienced some head trauma but is expected to recover. 

This sounds like something out of a movie, and I wanted to check multiple sources before posting the story, because it's SO unbelievable. This is literally the most terrifying thing I can imagine happening on a flight. The passengers said they "knew they were going to die" and many posted video of what they believed to be their final moments, before the plane was able to make a successful emergency landing in Pennsylvania.
