Cause of death revealed for victim on Southwest flight

The woman who perished during a terrifying Southwest Airlines flight on Tuesday died of blunt impact trauma.

A coroner’s report released Wednesday said that mother-of-two Jennifer Riordan’s cause of death was blunt impact trauma to the head, neck and torso.

Riordan, a New Mexico native, was remembered by Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller on Wednesday for her “leadership and philanthropic efforts.”
