Maura Furfey was on her way to Newark Airport to pick up her husband and 3-year-old daughter who were returning from a family trip in Cancun, México. They had traveled to Mexico to spend time with her husband’s mother and grandmother, who they see but once a year.
It was precious time for their daughter to connect with his side of the family. Furfey didn’t join them as she had to stay back to work.
She never imagined what would happen on their return flight.
