Hole breaks in fuselage, Southwest plane lands safely
A Southwest Airlines 737 landed safely in West Virginia last night after a 1 foot by 1 foot hole opened in the fuselage. Passengers could actually see the sky through the gape. Cabin pressure dropped, and passengers put on their masks quickly. Nobody was injured.
The plane was flying from Nashville to Baltimore but diverted as a result of the hole. The pilot landed the plane, to the thanks, applause and hugs of the passengers. As a precaution, Southwest is now inspecting all its 737s, the company announced. So far, the cause of the problem remains unknown.
