Delta Flight: A ‘Bunch of Blood and Awfulness’ (Video)

( – Severe turbulence described as a scene of “blood and awfulness” has left dozens of passengers on a Delta Airlines flight with significant injuries, with many having to be stretchered off and hospitalized.

You can watch a video of the aftermath further down this post.

Eleven people from Delta Flight 175 from Milan, Italy, to Atlanta, Georgia, ended up in hospital after the plane hit “severe turbulence” outside the latter.

The incident occurred around 7 p.m. EST on Tuesday, shocking those aboard the Airbus A350, which still managed to make a safe landing at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to federal authorities and the airline, as cited by The New York Post.

Social media footage of the aftermath of the turbulence showed at least two people carried on stretchers off the flight.

Instagram user @helloayo, who made the video, informed the plane “dropped” unexpectedly due to turbulence, causing many passengers and crew members who weren’t wearing their seat belts to “fly up out their seats.”

The footage shows a passenger holding an ice pack to her head while another woman, a flight attendant, was taken off the plane with a neck brace and a head bandage.

More crew members can be seen in the video sitting in wheelchairs in the terminal and wearing neck braces.

“One woman hit the overhead bin and cracked it. There were several injuries, including most of the flight attendants,” the Instagram user wrote.

“We made an emergency landing, and the non-seriously injured had to stay on the plane until a new flight crew came in because you can’t debark without one,” she added.

A couple, who were among the passengers, told Fox5 that extracting those with injuries, including some with “serious head injuries,” took about two hours. During that time, the other passengers had to remain on board.

“Bunch of blood and awfulness. My fiancée and I are so freaked out, we are renting a car and driving to our final destination instead,” said one of the two interviewed passengers who asked to be kept anonymous.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the turbulence occurred about 40 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

There were no immediate reports about the condition of those hospitalized and the scope of their injuries.
