Let this be another lesson – keep your seatbelts fastened during all phases of flight! And never get up when that seat belt sign is turned on. You never know when clear air turbulence will strike. When it does the injuries can be catastrophic.
This happened on Monday. A Continental flight from IAH to FLL. The plane was cruising at 31,000 over the Gulf of Mexico when it struck turbulence, causing injuries to all three flight attendants onboard. Each one was taken to the hospital when they arrived in FLL. Fortunately, no passengers were hurt.
Always Fasten Your Seatbelts!. Always buckle the kids up. Safety should always come first!
