Dozens Hurt After China Eastern flight Hits Turbulence Between Paris-Kunming

A huge hole in a part of the left engine of an Eastern Chinese airplane

Flight MU774 landed safely around 9 a.m. Sunday at Kunming Changshui International Airport in China's Yunnan province after taking off in Paris, France over 11 hours earlier.

"We felt strong turbulence twice and minor turbulence three times. The process lasted about 10 minutes", Xinhua quoted a passenger with the surname Zhang, as saying.

"Flight landed safely in Kunming, medical services were arranged", the statement added.

It said that during the turbulence, several passengers' heads and shoulders collided with the luggage racks, some luggage racks broke from the impact, and some luggage fell off the racks and hit customers. At least four people were in a serious condition, it said.

Mayweather said that a confidentiality clause is in place and that the financial purses of the fighters will not be disclosed. "IT'S OFFICIAL!" Mayweather wrote on his Twitter account alongside a short video that included photos of both fighters.

China Eastern didn't specify when or where the turbulence took place. People on board who were not wearing seat belts were thrown from their seats, while other were struck by baggage jarred loose from overhead compartments.

Just a week earlier, a China Eastern flight from Sydney to Shanghai was forced to turn around after its flight crew noticed a hole in the plane's engine just moments after taking off.

China Eastern Airlines later said it was crucial passengers wear seatbelts as flights descend. No one aboard the twin-engine Airbus A330 was injured.

"[We] remind all passengers, for your safety, please fasten seatbelts", the airline wrote.
