UPDATE: One killed after engine fragment damages Southwest jet bound for Dallas

(NBCNews) - A passenger 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.

The officials did not immediately detail what happened, but passengers described a terrifying experience that started when a piece of the engine apparently flew into a window midflight, shattering it and depressurizing the plane. A woman was then partially sucked out of the broken window, passengers said.

"The window had gone out there," passenger Eric Zilbert said. "There were several heroic gentleman who pulled her back through the window and administered CPR."
