18 injured on flight to Hong Kong

Every flight encounters turbulence at some point and 18 passengers certainly felt it on an Air Mauritius flight to Hong Kong. Three had to be admitted to hospital.

A spokesman for Hong Kong's Airport Authority Chris Lam said: "The plane had a safe landing, all we know is that it encountered some turbulence." The plane did however land safely.

Television images showed a young man being taken to hospital on a stretcher wearing a neck and head brace. The others injured had minor injuries and were discharged as soon as they had been treated.
