A Southwest Airlines flight headed from New York to Dallas made an emergency landing in Philadelphia late Tuesday morning after a problem occurred with one of its engines.

Southwest 1380 made the emergency landing after a piece of an engine caused damage to one window and the fuselage, the FAA said in a statement.
