  • The incident occurred mid flight on a Air India Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Priti Chawla/Facebook/Storyful A still from a video dated April 19 appearing to show a flight attendant holding a woman's face after a window panel broke during an Air India flight.

An Air India official confirmed three passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries caused due to violent turbulence.

A senior Air India official told The Times of India, "This was a freak high level turbulence". India's aviation watchdog, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is part of the investigations and the Boeing 787 involved in the incident has been grounded.

Recently, there was a shocking incident on a domestic American airline: after an engine burst, the shrapnel had shattered an aircraft window and a woman passenger was nearly sucked out.

The impact caused the window panel to break off, some oxygen masks dropped and one passenger was injured after her head hit the overboard cabin.

The duration of Amristar-Delhi flight is about 35 minutes and on April 19, the flight was full with over 240 passengers, another official said. But in another interview, less than a fortnight ago, Tata Sons Chairman Natarajan Chandrasekaran said that the group would consider if adding another airline to its aviation business would make sense to its business prospects.

According to Fox news, the plane was rocked by turbulence shortly after take-off as it reached 15,000ft and then lasted nearly half of its journey.

It's been nearly a month since the civil aviation ministry came out with the preliminary information memorandum (PIM) on Air India's strategic disinvestment.

According to NDTV, the Dreamliner is also fitted with a state-of-the-art turbulence dampening system which is created to counteract the effects of instability during a flight. The overhead panel cover of a seat also reportedly got cracks.

At least three people are understood to have been treated for minor injuries.

Footage taken by a passenger shows fear spread throughout the cabin as an air hostess tries to fix a window panel back onto the wall in front of terrified passengers.
