30 Injured on Hyper-Turbulent Flight

Plane dropped 3,300 feet in seconds


Thirty people suffered minor injuries on a flight from Havana to Milan when the plane encountered unusually strong turbulence and plunged 3,300 feet in a matter of seconds. The flight continued on after it was determined that the plane had suffered no structural damage, landing safely at Milan’s Malpensa airport on Monday. Two physicians on board the plane treated passengers for minor scrapes and bruises. One passenger, Edoardo De Lucchi, described the experiences as “10 seconds of terror,” with meal trays flying through the air and passengers who had not buckled their seatbelts bouncing about the cabin.
