Witnesses told of passengers being
thrown out of their seats and hitting the
ceiling and overhead lockers of the South
African Airways Airbus after it
encountered what the airline termed
"severe turbulence" over Malaysia.

Two people remained in hospital last night after air
turbulence tossed passengers and crew around a
Hong Kong-bound jet yesterday, injuring 20.

David Mkumbuje,  a passenger who
was travelling alone on a business trip to
Guangzhou, said the rough patch lasted several
"It was like the end of the world," he said, adding
that he had bumped and scratched his head.

Flight SA286 had 165 passengers on board when it
struck the turbulence at about 8.30am. South
African Airways said 17 passengers and three
crew members were injured. Two passengers
were initially listed as seriously hurt, with six
others also requiring hospital treatment.
The two
still in hospital were last night in a stable condition.

Brian Heuer, who was on the flight with his wife,
said many passengers were asleep when the
plane hit the turbulence. "Most of the injured hit
their heads on the roof of the cabin," he
Another passenger said most of the injured
had been sitting at the rear of the plane.
"A lot of passengers were scared, but … the crew
had it under control and the landing was very
good," she said.

A Hong Kong Civil Aviation
Department spokeswoman said the plane hit
"severe turbulence" about four hours out of Hong
                "The pilot radioed our control tower saying it
was continuing its journey to Hong Kong rather
than diverting into another city and requested
medical assistance upon landing,"
    she said.

The flight landed shortly before 12.30pm at Chek
Lap Kok where 14 ambulances were waiting to
take the injured to hospital.

Paramedics assessed
the conditions of the eight injured men and 12
women on the airport apron before transporting
them to North Lantau Hospital, Princess Margaret
Hospital in Kwai Chung and Yan Chai Hospital in
Tsuen Wan.

The injured were aged 21 to 63, according to police.
