1 dead, 30 injured due to severe turbulence on Singapore Airlines flight

One person is dead, and 30 are injured after a Singapore Airlines flight faced severe turbulence.



"We can confirm that there are injuries and one fatality on board the Boeing 777-300ER," said SIA said in a statement. "There were a total of 211 passengers and 18 crew on board."


In all, 30 people, including passengers and crew members, were injured, officials said. The airline said in its statement that 18 people had been hospitalized and another 12 people were being treated for injuries. “The remaining passengers and crew are being examined and given treatment, where necessary, at Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok,” the airline said.


The man died aboard the flight, said Kittipong Kittikachorn, the director of Bangkok’s airport, without identifying him by name or giving a cause of death. The man’s wife was injured and taken to a hospital, Mr. Kittipong said.
