Several British Airways cabin crew members were seriously injured during severe turbulence on flight from Singapore to London.
The crew, on board the BA12 flight from Singapore to Heathrow, London, were hurt after the plane was struck by ‘severe’ and ‘sustained’ turbulence over the Bay of Bengal.
The Boeing 777-300ER was flying over the Bay of Bengal on Friday morning.
The airline had not experienced anything like it in ‘the last five years’ and the severity was ‘obscene’, according to the Sun.
One crew member reportedly suffered a possible broken leg, another suffered a serious head injury, and the third reportedly suffered a broken femur after they were flung into the air.
There were screams from the passengers and great upset spread through the cabins. The ‘fasten seat belt’ signs were on but the crew were carrying out essential duties when they were thrown around the cabin.
The flight was forced to turn back to Singapore at around 3am on Friday where the plane was checked for structural damage.
