I don’t know why I read stories like this.
YUMA, Ariz. — A Southwest Airlines passenger jet flying from Phoenix to Sacramento, Calif., made an emergency landing in Yuma, Ariz., Friday after experiencing “rapid decompression,” the FAA said.
Flight 812 landed safely at Yuma Marine Corps Air Station/International Airport at 4:07 p.m., the FAA said.
The cause of the decompression was not known. There were reports that a hole opened up in the plane.
“They had just taken drink orders when I heard a huge sound and oxygen masks came down and we started making a rapid descent,” a passenger named Cindy told CBS13 of Sacramento.
“They said we’d be making an emergency landing. There was a hole in the fuselage about three feet long. You could see the insulation and the wiring. You could see a tear the length of one of the ceiling panels.”
A Sacramento resident told CBS13 she received a text message from her husband, who was aboard the flight: “Plane going down. Love you.”
She said she heard from her husband a few minutes later after the plane landed safely. The woman’s husband said there was an apparent explosion or a hole in the plane, the TV station said.
Yeah. I’m going to make sure I’m legally comatose the next time I fly. And yeah, I know that the chances of this happening are very small, blah blah, I DON’T CARE.
