A Southwest Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger window cracked during a trip from Chicago to Newark. The airline seemed to downplay the incident as a "maintenance" issue, but those in the sky were reminded of the incident that left one Southwest passenger dead just two weeks ago.
Thankfully, the bursted window didn't cause any harm to the passengers as it didn't crack through the numerous layers of window pane that protect the aircraft.
Flight 957 landed safely in Cleveland, Ohio, and the passengers were escorted directly on to another plane.
A spokeperson for the airline said that: "The flight landed uneventfully in Cleveland. The aircraft has been taken out of service for maintenance review, and our local Cleveland Employees are working diligently to accommodate the 76 customers on a new aircraft to Newark.”
