10 Injured on American Airlines Flight Due to Turbulence


Yup, officially never flying again.

At least ten people have been hospitalized after an American Airlines flight that was heading to Philadelphia from Athens, Greece experienced extreme turbulence.

According to ABC7, Ian Smith a passenger on the flight said:

“Thirty minutes out. They were giving us our drinks. The flight attendants were in the last couple rows when they said ‘fasten your seat belts.’ And then they said for the flight attendants to get to their seats, and they didn’t even have time. It started shaking, then it took a big drop. Babies screaming, people in front of us hitting the ceiling.”

Thankfully, American Airlines flight 759 landed safely and everyone survived.

One passenger, New York City resident Alex Ehmke said,

“There was just very slight turbulence for about five seconds and then suddenly it felt like the whole plane was in free fall.”

Jessica Huseman, a reporter for ProPublica, was on the flight and tweeted the events:

Like I said, I’d never fly again.
