AA Flight Attendants Injured During Severe Turbulence

Turbulence caused an American Airlines flight from D/FW International Airport headed to Memphis to be diverted to Little Rock, Arkansas.

American Eagle flight 3358 was en route to Memphis Wednesday when it encountered severe weather.

The ride was so rough, it caused a beverage cart to fly into the air, spilling drinks in the cabin and ripping the side of a seat.

"The pilot opens his door up and you could see the pain in his face," passenger Don Paul said.

Two flight attendants were taken to a hospital for minor injuries in Little Rock.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines released the following statement: 

American Eagle Flight 3358, operated by Envoy Air, from Dallas/Fort Worth to Memphis, Tenn., encountered turbulence and diverted to Little Rock, Ark. The Embraer E175 aircraft landed without incident at 12:02 p.m. CT, and safely taxied to a gate. Two Envoy flight attendants were transported to a local hospital, and no passengers reported any injuries.

Passengers were moved to another plane to continue their trip.
