Turbulence Hits Lufthansa Flight, 14 Injured

I’ve been sitting at a Delta gate at Bradley, checking out the news, and I just saw a story about turbulence injuries over the weekend in Switzerland.

A Lufthansa A321 flying from Munich to Lisbon hit clear-air turbulence over the Alps that sent passengers, cabin crew and food service carts flying. Several passengers who were not belted in hit the ceiling.

The plane made an emergency landing. Fourteen people were injured, four of them seriously enough to require hospital treatment.

I think I’ll keep my seat belt on today.
