Air Canada cabin bloody after turbulence

By  | 

An Air Canada flight to Australia landed in Hawaii with 37 people injured from sudden turbulence.
Emergency responders at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu say nine people suffered serious injuries Thursday. Emergency workers transported 30 people to hospitals.
Honolulu Emergency Medical Services Chief Dean Nakano says the injured ranged from children to the elderly.
Officials say customs agents met passengers at the gate to ensure they could get medical attention quickly.
The airline says the flight from Vancouver to Sydney encountered "un-forecasted and sudden turbulence," about two hours past Hawaii and later diverted to Honolulu.
Passengers say the turbulence tossed people into the air, some hitting the ceiling.
Air Canada was arranging hotel accommodations and meals in Honolulu and options for resuming the flight.
