Here's how 3 passengers of Air India injured due to turbulence

A Newsagency ANI tweeted the video by saying, "Air India flight from Amritsar to Delhi experienced severe turbulence and three passengers sustained minor injuries".

A video on Twitter shows a flight attendant trying to put the window back in front of frightened passengers.

"Three passengers who were injured were given first aid in the aircraft and on arrival into Delhi and went on their connecting flights thereafter", the spokesperson said, according to PTI, adding the airline was conducting an inquiry into the incident.

The incident has been described as a "freak kind of severe turbulence". "AI and Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is probing it", said a senior AI official. So much so, that a window panel came off and fell on a passenger. As per reports, the window panel also came off and the oxygen masks were also dropped down for passengers.

The duration of Amristar-Delhi flight is about 35 minutes.

The cause of the turbulence on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is being investigated and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board has been informed. "For 10-12 minutes we passed an area of incredibly strong turbulence", the pilot who flew the plane said.

According to NDTV, the Dreamliner is also fitted with a state-of-the-art turbulence dampening system which is created to counteract the effects of instability during a flight. "The outside window did not break, and there was no de-pressurisation". While the injured were attended to by the aircraft's emergency response team, upon landing, they were rushed to the nearest hospital. The overhead panel cover of a seat also reportedly got cracks.

The turbulence on the Air India flight has drawn parallels to an incident during a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight in October 2014.

After the jet burst from ny to Dallas on Southwest flight 1380, the banking executive suffered head injuries. The passenger whose head hit the overhead panel got stitches.
