HONOLULU (AP) - A Continental Airlines flight from Tokyo to Honolulu
hit severe turbulence Wednesday, injuring 18 passengers and four
flight attendants. The injuries were mostly bumps and bruises, said
an airline spokeswoman. Thirteen passengers were treated at The
Queen's Medical Center and released. The flight attendants were
treated at another hospital for contusions and strains. Flight 910
landed safely at the Honolulu airport about three hours after hitting
turbulence at 33,000 feet, said Marilyn Kali of the state
Transportation Department. The plane was carrying 330 passengers, 15
flight attendants and three pilots. Most of the injured passengers
were sitting in the back of the plane. See
