Severe Turbulence Injures at Least 35 on Air Canada Flight To Australia
Turbulence is mostly harmless, just the wind making the aircraft move a little in the same way a car would shake on a bumpy road. But in this very rare scenario, turbulence resulted in the injury of dozens of passengers.
When an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Sydney, Australia, encountered unexpected severe turbulence, it was forced to make an emergency landing in Hawaii. Air Canada spokesperson Angela Mah said, “Current information indicates there are approximately 35 people who appear to have sustained minor injuries.”
