An intense  turbulence had hit an Air Canada flight leaving dozens injured and propelling passengers who were not buckled into their seats to hit the ceiling.

 

 

Due to a sudden turbulence the flight from Vancouver to Sydney had to divert to Honolulu, Hawaii and was dropped mid-flight.

 

 

So far, thirty seven passengers and crew were injured, among them 30 were taken to the hospital and nine suffered from severe injuries.

 

 

Passengers who were not sitting and wearing their seattbelt shooted out of their seats and hit the ceiling of the aircraft.

 

 

A passenger reported that there was a lot of blood everywhere.

Andrew Szucs, a passenger said that all of a sudden the plane dropped and went sideways. And that’s when the people who weren’t strapped in flew, hit the ceiling.There was no warning issued from the crew that the plane was about to drop.

 

Oxygen masks were hanging down from the ceiling as shown in the footage.

 

 

According the US Federal Aviation Authority a Boeing 777 hit turbulence at 36,000 feet 600 miles southwest of Honolulu, and medical personnel met the aircraft at the gate.
