  • Sudden turbulence’ leaves multiple people injured aboard Air Canada flight forces emergency landing in Hawaii

An Air Canada flight was diverted to Honolulu, Hawaii, after experiencing unusually severe turbulence that left 35 passengers with minor injuries, the airline said in a statement.

According toCTV News, on an Air Canada flight set to stop in Vancouver, an emergency landing was made called in Honolulu today.

A case of severe turbulence in June on a flight from Kosovo to France was captured on video, showing a flight attendant hitting the ceiling and another praying.

The plane landed safely in Honolulu at 9:45 a.m. Vancouver time, said Air Canada spokeswoman Angela Mah.

It was over the Pacific Ocean when the plane experienced what an Air Canada spokesperson described as "un-forecasted and sudden turbulence".

A source familiar with the situation told CTV News that at least two dozen passengers and one crew member were injured as a result.
