Southwest Airlines flight #1380 (Scheduled to fly from New York to Dallas) was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia on Tuesday after an apparent engine issue. Reports on social media (I know… I know…) claim that the plane depressurized mid-flight after a piece of the damaged engine shattered a window.

Photos from the event are pretty dramatic.
