Sunday night’s Aeroflot flight SU270 from Moscow to Bangkok hit severe turbulence and 20 people were severely injured.
Three babies were among those injured in the carnage after being thrown from their mothers’ arms.
Many of the passengers were not wearing seatbelts at the time because the crew of the Aeroflot Boeing 777 did not have time to warn them.
Evgenia Zibrova posted video online saying: ‘Numerous air pockets one hour before landing led to broken bones, internal and external bleeding.
‘Lots of people from the tail cabin have broken their noses, several people have probably broken their spines.
‘Babies are covered in bruises, people lost consciousness. Thanks that we are still alive. Aeroflot, please help these people.’
19 passengers were taken to the hospital on arrival in Bangkok. Two underwent surgery.
C’mon people: Wear your seat belt when you are seated, even if the seat belt sign is off.
