Boston airport: 18 passengers injured after extreme turbulence hit two flights.
Passengers from two flights landed at Boston Logan Airport were taken to hospital with head, back and neck injuries and burns last night after the aircraft they were on suffered extreme turbulence.
The two commercial aircraft landed in Boston after 18 passengers sustained injuries while in the sky.
A Lufthansa flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Munich was diverted to Boston after it experienced problems when it flew through the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia.
Flight 429, which had 245 passengers and 18 crew on board, was greeted by emergency crews as it landed at 11:45 pm.
“I saw the plane go down, down, down and I said, <<Oh my God, oh my God>>,” one passenger told local station WCVB.
The other aircraft, a Jet Blue flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Boston also landed at the airport with seven people injured.
Seven people were injured on flight 852, which had 130 passengers and five crew members.
Six of the people injured had head, back and neck injuries. One people had been burned by coffee.
The 852 flight landed at its intended destination of Boston around 10:00 pm, about 20 minutes ahead of schedule, according to the airline’s website.
“I thought, <<Oh my God, this could be it>>. But it didn’t last that long. It was quite a surprise,” one female passenger told WCVB.
“I had the coffee jump everywhere. We started screaming. Oh my God, so scary,” another female passenger told the station.
Phil Orlandella, spokesman for the Boston Logan Airport, said he did not know the extent of the injuries on the Lufthansa flight.
