Liu was flying an Airbus A319 with 119 passengers aboard en route to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, when a windshield panel cracked and shattered at 32,000 feet. The co-pilot, who was wearing a seatbelt, was reportedly pulled about halfway out of the airplane due to the rapid decompression. However, he suffered only minor injuries, according to the report.
