Air Canada flight makes emergency landing with 35 people injured

At least 35 passengers on board an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Sydney have minor injuries after their flight hit sudden turbulence. The plane landed at the Daniel K. Inouye International airport, according to the airport duty manager.

The plane initially took off from Toronto and made a scheduled stopover in Vancouver Wednesday night, before taking off for Sydney, Australia. The plane found itself experiencing extreme turbulence over the Pacific Ocean.

Multiple injuries were reported on a flight that experienced turbulence near Hawaii. The severity of the injuries are not known at this time.

"Our first priority is to always the safety of our flights, passengers and crew and as a precaution, medical personnel are on standby to assist passengers in Honolulu", he said.

Initially 20 to 25 people were reported hurt, but after closer examination by medical personnel, an Air Canada spokesperson told CBC News it appeared that 35 people sustained minor injures, majority being head and neck injuries.

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

The airline is now making arrangements for passengers, including hotel accommodations and meals in Honolulu, as well as providing flight options, Mr. Fitzpatrick added. All passengers that were injured during the turbulence and subsequent emergency landing are receiving medical treatment in Hawaii.
