Well, good that none of the injuries sound serious. I thought there was another recent flight with heavy turbulence as well that was in the news.

I was on a flight leaving Chicago when the plane hit turbulence.  No one was hurt, but I was scared and there aren't many things that scare me.  This is why airlines insist passengers wear their seat belts throughout the flight.

Thank God no one was seriously injured on this flight.
