Madeline "Amy" Sweeney
American Airlines Flight 11
Flight Attendant

Madeline Amy Sweeney, 35, of Acton, Mass., had been an American flight attendant for 12 years. She leaves a husband and two children. Sweeney usually worked only on the weekends so she could spend more time with her family, her stepmother Doris Todd told the Norwich Bulletin. "She just happened to pick up an extra day, and today happened to be the day," Doris says.

Sweeney is the mother of two children, 4 and 5. She relayed information about the hijacking to her supervisor by cell phone.
