A 53-year-old Air India air hostess suffered serious injuries after falling off a Mumbai-Delhi flight on Monday morning. The air hostess was reportedly closing the door of the aircraft when she fell.
Air India released an official statement confirming the incident: "After flight IX 611 from Trichy to Dubai had taken off from Trichy at about 1:30 a.m. today, it was reported by local airport officials at Trichy that they have observed that the aircraft might have come in contact with the airport perimeter wall".
The airline termed the incident as "unfortunate" and said that it was investigating into it. The plane was originally scheduled to depart at 7 a.m. but was delayed an hour and a half due to the incident.
It further added, "She also suffered from a sprain in the neck (cervical spine)".
The woman is under observation and is being treated by Dr Prakash M Doshi, director of orthopedics and traumatology, Nanavati Hospital's Chief Operating Officer Dr Rajendra Patankar said.Читайте также: Josh Allen Injures Elbow, Bills Bring In Nathan Peterman
According to reports, Harsha Lobo is undergoing treatment at Mumbai Hospital. The airline is now looking into whether the incident was caused by a technical snag or pilot error. "The total weight of the plane at the time of take off was about 62,000 kg which is well within the permissible takeoff load", the official said.
About three years ago, an Air India engineer had got sucked into an aircraft's engine at the Mumbai airport when the pilots started the engines prematurely after mistaking a signal.
Air India and Nanavati Hospital did not immediately respond to Sputnik's requests for comment.
The plane, which was carrying 130 passengers and six crew members, was diverted to Mumbai, where it landed safely.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
