Dangerous turbulence – level 2
A plane was flying from the Emirati capital Abu Dhabi to Jakarta in Indonesia when turbulence hit. Nobody expected it, and the plane rocked from side to side.
It scared the people on the packed plane. They prayed and cried. The turbulence injured more than 30 of them. Many suffered broken bones and, according to reports, nine of those hurt are still in hospital.
The plane safely landed in Jakarta and people inspected it. They say that most turbulence accidents happen at 9.1 kilometres or above. It can be hard to know when turbulence is coming, and your seat belt may not always help you.
Difficult words: rock (to move), packed (full of people), suffer (if you suffer something, something bad happens to you).
