On a flight from Puerto Rico, Hernandes Torrez with her five year old daughter and her 53 year old mother experienced a terrifying turbulence during their flight home from spending Mother’s day in Puerto Rico.
The turbulence came unexpectedly since Hernandes mentions that the flight attendants were serving snacks and beverages during the moment of surprise. She describes the moment as a moment of terror as the plane started to shake violently. The jet then took a sharp drop and passengers who were not wearing the seatbelts were falling up and hurting themselves in the upper compartments of the plane.
Eight people were hurt and taken care of when medical reinforcements stood ready when the plane landed in Florida at 9 PM on Monday.
