President Donald Trump met Tuesday with the crew and passengers of Southwest Flight 1380, calling their actions on the troubled flight last month an example of "the great character of our nation".
Riordan was the one passenger who died during the incident after being sucked out of a broken window, asserting that he would be praying for her husband and children.
President Trump honored Shults, the first officer and three flight attendants at the Oval Office Tuesday. "We ask God to hold this family close as they grieve the loss of a loving wife and mother".
Trump added to the praise that the pilot, Capt. Tammie Jo Shults, has earned for helping prevent a far worse outcome, saying she did an "incredible job".
Flight 1380 was en route from NY to Dallas when its left engine suddenly blew apart, sending shrapnel through a window and killing a 43-year-old New Mexico woman. "We send our prayers to Jennifer's husband and their two lovely young children", Trump said, adding, "She must've been a fantastic woman".
The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating what caused the window to break and what caused the metal fatigue in the area where a fan blade broke off from one of the plane's engines.
Chavez alleges she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, as well as other injuries. They're still talking about it. Riordan, who was partially sucked out of the plane, was pulled back inside the cabin by other passengers.
The ex-Navy fighter pilot's flying skills and calm demeanor are credited with bringing the 737 to the ground safely after the plane's left engine exploded.
"I'm honoured to have the heroic crew and passengers of Southwest Flight 1380 at the White House today", Trump said.
