I'm going to guess you've already heard about this by now, but just in case you're a recluse: A Southwest Airlines 737 skidded off the end of a runway and went through a barrier fence at Midway Airport last night, hitting at least four cars before coming to a stop in the middle of Central Ave. A 6-year-old boy who was inside one of the cars was killed. Here's Southwest's CEO's statement on the airline's first fatal accident in its 35-year history.
