One person was killed after an engine failed and forced a Southwest Airlines flight to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport on Tuesday, federal investigators said.

Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said that at about 11:15 a.m., the Southwest flight suffered an “apparent in-flight engine failure of the left engine.”

Sumwalt, who confirmed one fatality, said NTSB will ship the engine offsite and deconstruct it to determine what went wrong.

Sumwalt said the death marks the first passenger fatality on a U.S. carrier since 2009. The NTSB declined to speculate on the cause of death. It also marks the first passenger fatality for Southwest.
