26 injured as plane from Paris hits turbulence in China
Beijing: At least 26 people were injured when a China Eastern Airlines flight from Paris to the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming hit turbulence on Sunday.
Passengers’ onboard flight MU774 suffered injuries such as fractures when strong turbulence caused them to hit the overhead lockers and be hit by falling baggage, as per sources.
This was the second incident the airline encountered within the week. On June 11, a China Eastern Airlines flight MU736 bound for Shanghai had to make an emergency landing and return to Sydney after a hole emerged in one of the aircraft’s engines.
