Three Passengers Complain of Injury on Turbulent Flight, One Sent to Hospital
One passenger was sent to a local hospital after complaining of injuries during a turbulent flight from New Orleans to Chicago.
An American Eagle 7:27 a.m. flight on a Bombardier CRJ- 700 plane left New Orleans from Louis Armstrong International Airport. During the flight, as the plane descended from 31,000 feet to 29,000 feet, the aircraft hit some turbulence. The movement was severe enough to cause seat belt lights to activate.
When the 26-passenger plane landed at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport at 9:31 a.m., three passengers complained of neck and back injuries. Fire officials reported that one of the three people went to the hospital. The other two passengers complaining of injury declined medical attention.
