Passengers injured due to turbulent US flight


Some crew and passengers of a US carrier Allegiant Airlines suffered severe injuries and broken bones after a flight from North Carolina to Florida experienced severe turbulence.

The flight was carrying 179 passengers and six crew members out of which four were injured. One flight attendant was flung into the air and later thrown back on the floor of the plane. A passenger who had gone to the toilet before the turbulence started, came out with blood gushing from a huge laceration on right eyebrow.
However, the flight landed normally and medical personnel were waiting to attend to the injured passengers. Two passengers and two flight attendants were taken to the hospital for treatment.
The Airlines is carrying out an investigation in coordination with the National Transportation Safety Board.
