Injured When JFK-Bound Plane Hits Severe Turbulence

Turbulance injures at least 25 on flight into New York

Dozens of passengers on a Turkish Airlines flight were injured when the plane encountered severe turbulence on its approach to JFK Airport Saturday night.

"Then I see people start flying on the plane".

The Boeing 777 had taken off from Istanbul with 326 passengers and 21 crew members.

Most of the passengers were treated inside an airport terminal.

Turkish Airlines confirms that its TK01 Istanbul - New York Flight encountered unusual turbulence about 40 minutes before landing at New York JFK Airport.

"Nobody announced it or anything like that so we figured out something was wrong", passenger Sead Nikaj told ABC News.

Most of the injuries aboard Turkish Airlines Flight 001 from Istanbul were minor, according to Steve Coleman, spokesman for the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which operates JFK Airport.

The plane was carrying more than 300 passengers and crew members.

"Then seeing blood all over".

It was the second mishap involving a plane in the NY metropolitan area.
