    At least 10 people who were aboard an American Airlines flight had to be hospitalized after having crossed a zone of intense turbulence, on Saturday.

    The aircraft was a liaison between Athens, Greece and Philadelphia.

    The incident, which lasted only a few seconds, but that was a particularly violent, according to witnesses, occurred a few minutes after the beverage service. During the turmoil, several drinks have been projected in the air, depending on what that has told a passenger to ABC 10.

    Once the device is laid on the ground, the three passengers and seven crew members were transported to a hospital in the Philadelphia region to be evaluated.

    American Airlines did not want to specify the severity of their injuries, according to a witness, one stewardess suffered a dislocation of the shoulder so the jolt was powerful.

    The pilot apologized to passengers, qualifying the zone of turbulence of the “totally unexpected”.

    A video captured a few minutes after the incident by a passenger shows a number of debris that littered the central aisle.
