“People who didn’t have the seat belts fastened got hurt mostly cause it came as surprise without seat belt sign on and lighting hit the plane badly,” said the husband of the passenger.

The flight’s original destination was Germany, but the turbulence caused the pilots to make an emergency landing in Virginia, at Dulles International Airport.
