Over 20 people were injured when a China Eastern flight MU774 from Paris to Kunming suddenly went through massive turbulence, Chinese media report.

Following the incident, the plane safely landed in Kunming, the capital of China’s southern Yunnan province, and those who needed medical help have been sent to the hospital, Xinhua reported.

None of the passengers received life-threatening injuries, said the First People’s Hospital of Yunnan Province, where those injured were taken.

At least 12 people have been hospitalized, with injuries including fractures, bruises, and head injuries.

The air carrier, China Eastern, has issued a statement acknowledging that the plane “suddenly encountered turbulence” and “some passengers on the plane experienced discomfort.”
