Turbulence Causes Chaos, Injuries on Sunday Flight

Posted: Updated:

Ten people were treated and released at a hospital near Philadelphia after an American Airlines flight encountered severe turbulence over the weekend.

Cell phone video shows debris scattered in the aisle after American Airlines Flight 759 hit severe turbulence Saturday afternoon.

The flight was en route from Athens and experienced the turbulence shortly before landing safely in Philadelphia. Three passengers and seven crew members were taken to the hospital where they were treated and released.

American Airlines says the seatbelt sign was on at the time, and released a statement thanking its team members for taking care of the customers. The FAA says it will investigate.
