Air India hits rough turbulence, injures 3 passengers
An Air India flight full of passengers hit with a crazy turbulence.
AMRITSAR, INDIA — An Air India flight from Amritsar to New Delhi last week experienced turbulence that left three passengers injured and caused a window panel to come loose.
Air India Flight 462 was carrying over 240 passengers on April 19 for the 35-minute flight to the nation's capital, the Hindu reported.
Airline officials said the plane took off at 2:50 p.m. and hit rough turbulence soon after at around 15,000 feet due to bad weather.
The turbulence lasted for around 10-12 minutes. Three passengers sustained minor injuries and were treated at the Delhi Airport.
A window panel inside the aircraft also came loose during the turbulence, the officials said.
India's aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board are now investigating the incident.
