Turbulence on Hawaiian Airlines flight injures 36


A Hawaiian Airlines flight from Phoenix to Honolulu on Sunday experienced severe turbulence 15 to 30 minutes before leaving. According to BBC, at least 36 people have been injured, 11 seriously.

Hawaiian Airlines Flight 35, an Airbus 330, was carrying 278 passengers and 10 crew members. CNN reports that the turbulence was reported around 10:35 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time.

According to Hawaii News Now, the turbulence sent passengers flying out of their seats. One passenger told Hawaii News Now that the turbulence started without warning. Jon Snook, Hawaiian Air executive vice president and chief operating officer, said the fasten seatbelt sign was on before the turbulence began.

The flight landed safely around 10:50 a.m. CNN reports that the American Medical Response and the EMS responded to a “mass casualty emergency.” Injuries included a serious head injury, lacerations, bruising and loss of consciousness.

“We’re very thankful the extent of the injuries was not critical. It could have been worse,” Snook told Hawaii News Now.
