Injury on board

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

A Boeing 767, was enroute from Beijing (China) to Tokyo (Japan). It was cruising at FL380. The captain had turned off the fasten seat belt sign. The cabin crew were serving food and passengers were moving around when suddenly there was unexpected, severe turbulence. One passenger, who was leaving the toilet, was thrown into the air and landed heavily on his ankle. During this fall he sprained his ankle. He was given painkillers by a doctor on board and returned to his seat for the rest of the flight. The crew descended to avoid the turbulence and continued to their destination for a safe landing about 2 hours later.

Fall from passenger door

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

An Airbus A320-200, was preparing for departure from Warsaw (Poland) to Rome (Italy). The flight had boarded all of the passengers and was preparing to close the doors. The jetway was moving away from the plane when a flight attendant stepped out to close the door of the plane. He lost his footing and fell onto the tarmac, a few metres below. Medical services arrived almost immediately and the crew member was taken to hospital where he was treated for cuts, bruises and a broken leg. He will be unable to work for three or four months. The flight continued to its destination and wasn’t delayed.
