An American Airlines flight that hit severe turbulence landed in Charleston, S.C., and officials say one flight attendant and two passengers were treated for minor injuries.
Fort Worth-based American Airlines spokesman Tim Smith said Flight 734 hit rough air near the Florida-Georgia border. The flight was headed from Miami to Reagan National Airport in Washington with 152 passengers and a crew of six.
The Boeing 737 landed shortly before 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Smith said emergency medical crews met the plane and treated those who were hurt. Video from South Carolina showed Charleston County EMS loading a patient into an ambulance outside the terminal.
He said a replacement plane was being flown to Charleston and the passengers would continue on. NBCWashington.com reports the plane is expected to arrive at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
Smith said the plane made a normal landing and added that mechanics will check out the aircraft for any damage.
