Sudden landing of a US plane caused injury to 3 passengers with some wounds, due to air bumps that made it difficult to fly.

According to the reports, flight 5763 saw a series of turbulence due to air bumps, which led to a forced landing at an airport after the refrigerator overturned.

Some of the passengers took pictures during the plane crash on Twitter. The refrigerator was loaded onto the passengers’ seats. The contents of the plane were loaded with gas and water bottles, along with the luggage and bags that were on top of the passengers.


The plane was on its way to Santa Ana, California, coming from Washington, but the crew had to make an emergency landing in Nevada, carrying 59 passengers along with 4 crew members.

After the landing, the injured were taken to hospital for treatment, and one of the crew members was also injured during the flight.

The air bumps are abruptly caused by a change in the airwaves, due to number of natural factors. Other pitfalls are called thermals, and they occur with hot air, which often arise from cumulus clouds and thunderstorms.
