A Sichuan Airlines co-pilot was "sucked halfway" out of the cockpit window when the windshield of the aircraft broke, Reuters reported, citing local media.

There was a drop in pressure and temperature when he noticed that the right windshield was gone.

The Airbus A319 was cruising when a deafening sound tore through the cockpit and it experienced a sudden loss of pressure.

"There was no warning sign".

"The windshield burst suddenly and a loud noise was heard, and when I looked to the side, I saw that the co-pilot was already halfway out of the window".

Freezing air also blasted through the cockpit's open windshield panel. Many devices were malfunctioned and the plane was jolting strongly. "The aircraft was shaking so hard I couldn't read the gauges".

The co-pilot was wearing his seatbelt.

His wife, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who heads Anwar's party, is now the new deputy prime minister. While in prison, he was reportedly beaten so bad that his shoulder sustained lasting injuries.


The Civil Aviation Administration of China said in a statement that part of the cockpit window broke as the plane was flying over Chengdu. Captain Liu Chuanjian found himself in a turbulent struggle to maintain control of a plane full of 119 passengers. A week later, another Southwest flight made an emergency stop when a window broke in the cabin.

No one was killed from the incident, which occurred about an hour into the flight headed from southwestern China to Tibet on Monday morning.

"My colleagues and I were shocked to learn of the incident and we do not know why it took place".

An emergency landing had to be made in southwest China earlier this week after a broken cockpit window almost resulted in a copilot being sucked out of an airplane.

A video shows oxygen masks deployed, and flight attendants walking up and down the aisle to give passengers instructions on how to disembark.

'I'm still nervous. I don't dare to take an aeroplane anymore. He only suffered minor injuries including a sprained wrist and a few scratches. "But I'm also happy I had a narrow escape". "We just tried our best to reassure the passengers and make everyone believe us that we could touch down safely", a flight attendant said.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation, he added. The Southwest flight was the first known occurrence, followed by a window panel falling off an Air India flight, which resulted in three passengers' injuries.
