Air India has launched a probe into the mishap.

It was only last week that passengers of an Air India Express flight flying from Trichy to Dubai had a miraculous escape, when the aircraft's take-off wheel hit the Trichy's airport's perimeter wall.

A spokesperson for Nanavati Hospital, where the flight attendant was taken, was not immediately available for comment when contacted by AFP.

The incident came weeks after more than 30 passengers aboard an aircraft of Indian carrier Jet Airways had to receive treatment after pilots "forgot" to turn on a switch regulating cabin pressure. Reports add that the flight - AI 864, a Boeing 777-337 aircraft - was scheduled to take-off at around 7 am. An official statement by the Air India over the incident is awaited.

It is suspected that Lobo lost her balance while closing the L5 door.

Sears files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
If Sears does file for bankruptcy, it could try to stay in business, using the court process to shed debt and unaffordable leases. Sears is far from the only brick-and-mortar outlet to fall by the wayside as more consumers do the bulk of their shopping online.

Harsha Lobo fell out of a gap between the ladder and the plane while she went to close the door.

The airline termed the incident as "unfortunate" and said that it was investigating into it. Harsha Lobo, 53, sustained serious fractures to her backbone and injuries to her right leg and has been admitted to Nanavati hospital in Vile Parle.

The plane was operated by Air India's low-priced wing, Air India Express.

The following shocker takes place just a few months after an Air India engineer got sucked into Air India's engine at the airport.

The tragedy happened when the co-pilot mistook a signal from ground staff and started the engine.
