Jennifer Riordan (pictured with her husband Michael) a mother-of-two from Albuquerque, was on a business trip when the plane's left engine exploded sending shrapnel flying into a window next to her seat. She was rushed to hospital immediately after the flight from New York to Dallas made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport at 11.27am, but authorities confirmed she later died. Annunciation Catholic School, where her two children attend school, identified Riordan as the victim on Tuesday afternoon. 'She was in route from New York when her plane experience (sic) trouble,' assistant principal Amy McCarty wrote in an email to parents. 'At this point, the family needs all the prayers we can offer.' Riordan, the wife of former City of Albuquerque Chief Operations Officer Michael, was the vice president of community relations for Wells Fargo bank, New Mexico, and had been on a business trip for the bank at the time of the explosion. It is not yet clear if Riordan was the woman nearly sucked out of the plane when the window was smashed.Seven other people were injured in the incident.
