“She was in route from New York when her plane experience (sic) trouble,” assistant principal Amy McCarty wrote in an email to parents, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
“At this point, the family needs all the prayers we can offer.”
Her husband, MIchael Riordan, was the former chief operating officer for the city of Albuquerque.
