For the first time, we are hearing from Jennifer Riordan’s husband. Riordan died when the engine blew up on Southwest Flight 1380 last week. The explosion caused a window to break open, pulling Riordan partially out of the plane before passengers helped pull her back in. Michael Riordan joined ABC News to talk about the tragedy that took his wife and how he told his children about her death saying, “to lose your wife and your partner for 29 years and the mother of your children is an impossible task.”
