At least 36 passengers and crew members on a Hawaiian Airlines flight injured, and 20 of them were brought to local hospitals for treatment after experiencing "extreme turbulence" on their flight from Phoenix to Honolulu on Sunday, according to the authorities.
According to a statement released by Honolulu Emergency Medical Services, eleven of the patients were in critical condition. A toddler who was only 14 months old was one of those who had to be sent to the hospital.
Honolulu EMS said the patients suffered a major head injury, as well as lacerations, bruising, and loss of consciousness as a result of their injuries.
According to a statement sent by the business, Hawaiian Airlines is “supporting all affected passengers & employees” and is keeping an eye on the issue. According to the airline, three members of the staff were among those hurt in the incident.
According to a tweet by Hawaiian Airlines:
Medical care was provided to several guests & crewmembers at the airport for minor injuries while some were swiftly transported to local hospitals for further care.- A tweet by Hawaiian Airlines
The turbulence began 15 to 30 minutes before the plane carrying 278 passengers and 10 crew members landed in Honolulu.
EMS and American Medical Response personnel rushed to the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport shortly after 11 a.m. on Sunday in response to a “mass casualty emergency”
According to the information provided by the Federal Aviation Administration, the turbulence was reported by an Airbus 330 belonging to Hawaiian Airlines Flight 35 at approximately 10:35 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time.
On the flight, there was a college student of 18 years old who was returning home for the holiday break. She reported that at first, the turbulence felt like it was typical. After that, there was a rapid increase in the shaking.
Jacie Hayata-Ano, who was a passenger on the plane described the sensation of being lifted off her seat while wearing her seat belt by saying that it "felt like free-falling."
Hayata-Ano, who was not harmed in the incident, stated that once the shaking stopped, a crew member used the public address system to make a request for any trained medical or military professionals to assist with passengers who had been injured.
She expressed her gratitude to the community by saying, “I’m thankful that there were people that stepped up and helped because some of the staff needed it,” she said. “Everyone was pretty much helping each other. Checking on each other and picking up stuff.”

Conclusion

Before putting the plane back into service, the airline stated that it is performing “a thorough inspection of the aircraft.”
Investigations into the incident are being carried out by both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
