Several people were injured after a Southwest Airlines plane made an emergency landing in Philadelphia on Tuesday due to an engine malfunction.

According to NBC Philadelphia, a passenger was “partially sucked out” of flight 1380 when a piece of the plane’s engine broke a window, causing the aircraft to depressurize. The victim was reportedly rushed to a Philadelphia hospital. No fatalities have been reported, but several other people are also believed to have been injured.

The flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport was diverted to Philadelphia International Airport, where it made an emergency landing around 11:30 a.m. local time Tuesday. The plane’s intended destination was Dallas’ Love Field.

There were 143 passengers and five crew on the plane when it made the sudden landing. Marty Martinez, a passenger on the flight, posted a live Facebook video of himself “recording his last moments.”
