EasyJet Crew Member Breaks Ankle

An easyJet crew member was taken to hospital after breaking their ankle during a flight to Milan’s Malpensa Airport. The cabin crew member was on board the easyJet Airbus A320 when the aircraft ran into unexpected turbulence.

At the start of the flight, there was no warning they would be heading into turbulence with the clear weather ahead.

A spokesman has confirmed that none of the 137 passengers were injured during the flight on the 30th January 2015.

Accident Report

This incident has only now been made public after a report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), was published.

According to the report, the flight crew during decent asked air traffic control if there were any reports of turbulence. They were informed there was light to moderate turbulence. The captain then advised his cabin crew there could be turbulence and asked them to secure the cabin. Within minutes of the warning, the aircraft suffered two short encounters of air turbulence.

Minor Injuries

According to the AAIB, two crew members were injured with one of them needing hospital treatment where one crew member was treated for a broken ankle and the other for severe bruising.
