Vehicle Incident in China on June 18 2017 02:58 PM (UTC).
Chinese media reported over 20 people injured on a China Eastern flight. According to the reports, the almost two dozen people were injured when Flight MU774, from Paris to Kunming, experienced severe turbulence. The airplane was eventually landed safely in the capital of Yunnan province and those who needed medical help were transported to the hospital, said Xinhua news agency. At least 12 people have been hospitalized, with injuries including fractures, bruises and head injuries. First People's Hospital in the province disclosed that none of the injuries were considered life-threatening. The carrier, China Eastern, issued a statement acknowledging that the plane "suddenly encountered turbulence" and "some passengers on the plane experienced discomfort." "Flight landed safely in Kunming, medical services were arranged," the statement added. This latest incident involving China Eastern happened a week after another plane in the fleet - which was bound for Shanghai - diverted because of a huge hole in a part of its left engine. The plane, an Airbus A330-200 twinjet, landed without incident and there were no injuries, according to Kathy Zhang, general manager for the Oceania region at the airlines. "The crew observed the abnormal situation of the left engine and decided to return to Sydney airport immediately. All passengers and crew members were landed safely," she said.
