Violent Turbulence Sends Air Hostess Crashing Into The Ceiling

Violent Turbulence Sends Air Hostess Crashing Into The Ceiling

For anyone afraid of flying, I would avert your eyes now. Horrific footage shows a flight attendant being sent up in to the ceiling of the plane after it hits violent turbulence.

The incident happened during a flight from Kosovo to Switzerland, and the stewardess and her drink trolley both went crashing into the ceiling.

The video that shows the the ALK Airlines flight from Pristina to Basel on Sunday shows drinks spilling over passengers as the attendant collides with the top of the plane.

A woman can be seen holding her hands together in prayer as water out of the drinks dispenser pours down her head and face.

Passengers were terrified as the plane is seen shaking violently, with the pilot trying to reassure them over the intercom.

Seats were seen torn up from the floor, with seatbelts broken and passengers left bleeding.

The video was taken by Mirjeta Basha. She said the turbulence started about 30 minutes after the plane took off, and lasted for five minutes - I imagine it felt like a whole lot longer.

Speaking to Minuten, she said: "People started screaming and crying. A flight attendant slammed her trolley on the ceiling. Cups flew around, some were scalded by hot water."

Her husband was taken to Basel Hospital after suffering burns. Nine other injured passengers also need medical attention after they landed at Basel Eurport.

Mrs Basha praised the cabin crew for their professionalism during the experience, which must have been highly traumatic for all involved.

She added: "They told us that we need not be afraid and everything will pass again."

Turbulence is extremely common and usually happens when cold and warm air come together - often at altitudes of 7,000 to 12,000 metres.

Air turbulence can be caused by a number of other things, including heat, jet streams and flying over mountain ranges.

It can be as insignificant and harmless as a few annoying bumps or severe enough to cause structural damage.

Although it can be scary, it rarely causes any damage to the actual plane - modern aircrafts are designed to withstand high levels of turbulence.

Fingers crossed anyone injured makes a swift recovery.
