At least 30 peo­ple were injured on Mon­day after an Air Europa Boe­ing 787–9 Dream­lin­er flight hit tur­bu­lence over the Atlantic, send­ing pas­sen­gers fly­ing out of their seats with one man appear­ing to have got­ten stuck in the over­head bins.

Pas­sen­gers aboard Flight UX045 from Spain to Uruguay shared har­row­ing video of the dam­age and after­math caused by the tur­bu­lence. Footage showed ceil­ing pan­els torn off, oxy­gen masks dan­gling over­head, and at least one destroyed seat.

A pas­sen­ger described the expe­ri­ence as “one of ter­ror, feel­ing that you are falling and that it does not end.” Anoth­er said “Those who did not have seat­belts flew and some remained hooked to the roof.”

Air Europa said the flight, car­ry­ing 325 pas­sen­gers, was forced to land in Natal, Brazil due to the tur­bu­lence. The injured are being treat­ed at a local hos­pi­tal, with a new plane set to bring the remain­ing pas­sen­gers back to Uruguay.
