Southwest Airlines giving $5K to passengers of deadly flight

They Are All Heroes: Quick Thinking Passengers React During Southwest Accident

Mrs. Riordan, a Wells Fargo executive from New Mexico, was a "thoughtful leader who has always been a part of the fabric of our community", said Tim Keller, the mayor of Albuquerque. The service was held at Popejoy Hall on the University of New Mexico campus, her alma mater.

Mrs. Riordan, who grew up in Vermont, attended Christ the King Elementary School in Burlington and graduated from Vermont's Colchester High School in 1992. Mackey said she and the child tried but failed to bring Riordan back in.

The couple had spent almost two decades living in Albuquerque.

Southwest Airlines reportedly mailed out formal apologies to the survivors of Flight 1380 a day after the plane's engine exploded mid-air, shattering a passenger window and causing the Boeing 737-700 to rapidly depressurize.

She later died at a hospital.

Seven other airline passengers reported having been injured, though none were injured seriously.

Riordan was well known in the Albuquerque area for an established career in community engagement and volunteerism. She provided encouragement to everyone with whom she came in contact. "On behalf of the entire Crew, we appreciate the outpouring of support from the public and our coworkers as we all reflect on one family's profound loss". "We are holding Jennifer and her family in our thoughts". She and Mike wrote a love story unlike any other. He presented Riordan's husband with a flag that was flown at half-staff at the state Capitol in her memory. "It's about knowing the difference between right and wrong, and choosing to do what's right, even when it's very hard to do what's right".

Government officials in New Mexico mourned Riordan's death.

The incident, however, had one fatality in Jennifer Riordan, who sat by the window near the left engine that broke apart. "Psychologically, I think there's a lot going on". She was then given CPR by a retired nurse for 20 minutes before the plane made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

And that spirit continues.

A statement from her family called her "the bedrock of our family". The impact showered the jet with debris and shattered the window next to Riordan.
