Even Moderate Turbulence Can Injure: United Tokyo Fliers Hurt

turbulence injure tokyo hurt

Over the weekend, a United flight from Washington Dulles to Tokyo’s Narita ran into what an airline spokesman described as “moderate turbulence” and 20 passengers were injured.

Most of the injuries apparently were bumps and bruises, but someone may have broken a leg – this according to a Japan police official.

United said (via the AP) that this occurred as the flight was midway into the flight, and the pilot did give warning, telling the passengers to buckle up.

Sometimes though, turbulence can happen without any warning; so please, anytime you’re in your seat, keep your seatbelt on.
