Passengers injured by turbulence on Vietnam Airlines flight

Some 21 passengers were injured when a Vietnam Airlines flight from Hanoi to Paris hit severe turbulence.

“The flight hit turbulence around two-and-a-half hours after take-off. There were light injuries but nothing serious. Nothing happened as regards the plane,” a Vietnam Airlines spokesman said.

The injured passengers had not been wearing seatbelts, officials reported. Nine were taken to hospital in Paris, while others were treated by fire crews before being brought to the airport’s clinic to be examined.

“According to initial information these passengers and air hostesses were not seriously hurt and five of the nine people have left the hospital,” the airline said.
