A person on board a Southwest Airlines plane was killed Tuesday after the plane’s left engine failed, damaging the fuselage and forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia, officials said.

Officials did not immediately detail what happened on board, but passengers described a terrifying experience that started when a piece of a jet engine apparently flew into a window, shattering the window and depressurizing the plane.

Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, confirmed the fatality but did not give the person’s gender or say if the person was a passenger or a crew member.
