Turbulence injures dozens on Air Canada flight to Australia

Almost three dozen passengers and crew sustained minor injuries Thursday when an Air Canada flight travelling from Toronto to Sydney, Australia, ran into severe turbulence, prompting an emergency landing in Honolulu.

Air Canada Flight 33 was two hours west of Hawaii when it encountered unexpected severe turbulence over the Pacific Ocean.

The Air Canada flight was forced to divert from its original destination of Sydney, Australia, and landed in Honolulu.

Another passenger, Alex MacDonald, said: "I watched a whole bunch of people hit the ceiling of the plane".

"Current information indicates there are approximately 35 people who appear to have sustained minor injuries", Mah said.

Forced to turn around, the pilots made an emergency landing in Honolulu early this morning, paramedics tended to the almost three dozen injured passengers. Honolulu Emergency Services Department spokeswoman Shayne Enright said injuries included cuts, bumps, bruises, neck pain and back pain. The pilot managed to land the plane at 6:50 AM Hawaiian time.

Passenger Luke Wheeldon told Honolulu news station KTIV about half the passengers weren't wearing seatbelts.

"There was no warning and then half of them, their head hit the roof all at once", he said. "I think one of the stewards was badly injured when the trolley fell on top of them", Bailey said.

Gregor says crew members asked for medical personnel to meet the plane at the gate.

The airline is now working to provide emergency accommodation to those affected and arrange an alternative flight to Sydney.

Air Canada is now making arrangements for the passengers, including hotel accommodations and meals in Honolulu, as well as options to resume the flight to Sydney.
