    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Southwest Airlines in a statement said one of its aircraft flying 76 people from Chicago’s Midway Airport to Newark, New Jersey had to make an emergency landing in Cleveland to review damage to a window pane.

    "The Crew of Southwest Flight 957… made the decision to divert the plane to Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport for maintenance review of one of the multiple layers of a window pane," the statement said.

    WGN News in Chicago posted pictures from a passenger posted a phone of a cracked window. The report said the window appeared to be blown out but no one is injured.
