???? That is the worse time for engine issues. Maybe you meant, at least it happened at a time in the takeoff when there was available runway to stop.

Right, what are the chances the blades are not only not contained by the containment ring but eject forward out of the cowl and are also shed at the correct trajectory to miss the fuselage and enter the engine on the other wing. Incredible circumstances at play.

Stupid headline as engine fragments from one engine were ingested by the other not the bird.

The second engine was indeed killed by collateral damage, but I'll still give the bird credit for two kills. Thankfully, it was only the engines that were killed.
