Pilot 'sucked halfway out' of cockpit window mid-flight

Pilot 'sucked halfway out' of cockpit window mid-flight

About 27 passengers sought medical assistance after the plane made an emergency landing in Chengdu, China, though airline officials say none appeared to be seriously hurt. Employees are pictured checking a Sichuan Airlines Airbus A319 on May 14, 2018 in Chengdu in China's northwestern Sichuan province.

The plane had to make an emergency landing after the accident.

"The situation was very critical".

"As pilots we receive such training twice a year, but it was one thing to train on a simulator and another when you are affected by the sudden loss of pressure and oxygen when the temperature drops to minus 40 degrees".

"There was no sign before the windshield burst".

Moving forward, Chinese authorities reported that the company is cooperating with the investigation, which Airbus representatives also confirmed to Fox News.

"When I looked to the side, the copilot's body had already flown out halfway out of the window". Luckily, he had the belt buckled up. Most of the equipment malfunctioned and I couldn't hear the radio. "It was very hard to control".

An unnamed passenger on the plane, which was carrying a total of 128 people, told the Chinese state-owned Xinhua News Agency: "The crew were serving us breakfast when the aircraft began to shake".

The Civil Aviation Administration of China said the co-pilot had a sprained wrist and facial cuts after his ordeal.

"All people were shouting onboard".

Incidents involving cracked windshields do happen on a regular basis due to occurrences such as bird or lightning strikes but ones involving entire windshields coming off are rare. A flight attendant also sustained minor injuries, while 29 passengers were sent to the hospital upon landing.

One passenger said the plane suddenly descended causing luggage and lunch boxes to drop to the floor (right).

Zhou said that some air stewardesses were thrown into air and that food was strewn about.

The captain said his co-pilot was partly "sucked out of the broken windshield".

Many Chinese social media users lauded the pilots as heroes and encouraged the airline to reward them.

The last known emergency of that kind occurred nearly three decades ago, in 1990, when a British Airways pilot survived a similar incident at an altitude of 23,000 feet.

"The crew were level-headed and dealt with the crisis decisively and properly, avoiding a major disaster, which shows the superb technical skills and professionalism", the CAA added.
