According to reports, 14 crew members and eight passengers were injured on a flight to Mumbai when a Singapore Airlines flight hit turbulence. The people who were hurt had to be treated at the hospital after the flight landed safely.
Reports show that the plane started shaking very heavily at 15,000 feet. The airline said that the injuries could have been a lot worse, but the seat belt sign was on. Most of the passengers were able to get their seat belts on at the time of the turbulence.
The plane was carrying 25 crew members and 408 passengers. Most of the people who were injured were released from the hospital the same day. However, there were two people who had to be kept for further medical assistance. The airline will keep the media updated on the people's conditions.
The airline also released a statement after the event, saying that flight SQ424, from Singapore to Mumbai, experienced some very rough and sudden turbulence. A number of the people on the plane experienced some injuries and had to be taken to the hospital once the plane landed safely.
This is not the only time that a Singapore Airlines flight has hit turbulence during a flight that resulted in injuries. Just last year, another Singapore Airlines flight hit turbulence during food service. As a result, food was hurled around the cabin, and some of it ended up on the ceiling.
