President Trump is set to meet with the crew of the Southwest Airlines flight that experienced an engine explosion, killing Albuquerque mother Jennifer Riordan. "We send our prayers to Jennifer's husband and their two handsome young children".

"President Trump will welcome the crewmembers and passengers from Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 to the Oval Office". "We're very, very proud of them".

"The courage it took for her to control that situation and really save everyone on board is really just unbelievable", one passenger said.

Trump also thanked Tim McGinty, Andrew Needum and Peggy Phillips - passengers aboard the flight who worked to help passenger Jennifer Riordan, who was killed after shrapnel from the engine broke through her window on the plane.

NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt has said a crack on a blade inside the engine led to the failure that blew debris at the aircraft.
