The incident marked the first fatality on a US commercial passenger airline since 2009. Shrapnel damaged the fuselage and broke the window.

The president praised pilot Tammie Jo Schults, shaking her hand and recognizing her son who was also among the guests. They're still talking about it. Other passengers pulled her back inside the cabin and tried to revive her.
