Severe Turbulence Injures 15 on Argentina-Bound Flight, Scattering Debris Across the Aisles
Fifteen passengers were injured as a result of the rough Miami-to-Argentina flight.
Passengers aboard a flight from Miami to Buenos Aires were covered in blood after severe turbulence rocked the plane Thursday night.
Photos showed debris, including cups, trays, pillows and food, scattered along the aisles, with oxygen masks dangling from the ceiling. The area where the flight attendants prepare food and beverages was also left in shambles, with wine and snacks strewn about.
At least 15 people were injured and one passenger was spotted holding a bloodied napkin, prompting one newspaper to dub the trip the "flight from hell."
When the plane arrived in Buenos Aires, the injured were treated at the scene, with eight of them being taken for further medical attention.
In a statement posted in Spanish on its website, Aerolineas Argentinas, which operated the flight, said: "The incident occurred in the cruise phase of the flight and was immediately reported by the commander in charge of the aircraft.
"The company arranged its medical equipment at the arrival of the flight to assist those passengers who suffered blows or bruises due to the sudden movements that this type of atmospheric conditions cause."
