Earlier, bloomberg reported that a Southwest Airlines Co. passenger jet had crashed on a passenger jet carrying 149 people, killing one passenger. The plane, which flew from New York’s laguardia airport to Dallas, made an emergency landing at Philadelphia international airport. Seven people suffered minor injuries.

The national transportation safety board says it will investigate whether the two CFM56 engine crashes in southwest airlines have common ground.

Southwest airlines is also initially gathering information and working with regulators, engine makers and aircraft manufacturers to deal with the problem, according to the chief executive of southwest airlines. It is too early to comment on whether southwest airlines will be able to carry out additional inspections of aircraft, or limit flights.
Southwest’s jet engine explosion caused the crash and the death of a passenger, the first fatal accident involving a domestic airline since 2009, the report said.
Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the national transportation safety board (NTSB), confirmed the death at a press conference on Sunday. He will lead an investigation team from Washington to Philadelphia.
The last fatal accident involving a U.S. passenger airline was Feb. 12, 2009. A commuter flight operated by Colgan Air crashed near buffalo, New York, killing 49 people on board and killing one on the ground.
Samwater said the national transportation safety board had obtained the two black boxes from the southwest jet and transported them to the laboratory in Washington. He said the agency is sending experts on engine, air operations and passenger survival to the scene.
