Severe 'clear air turbulence' leaves 27 passengers seriously injured

At least 27 people on board an Aeroflot flight from Moscow to Bangkok were injured on Monday after their plane hit an undetectable air pocket, the Russian embassy in Thailand said in a statement.

Reuters reports that 24 of the injured on the Boeing 777 were Russian nationals and the remaining three were from Thailand.

The Russian Embassy confirmed that 14 of the 313 passengers aboard Flight SU270 are still receiving medical treatment at a Bangkok hospital, while 11 others had already been discharged.

Flight SU270, which originated in Moscow, was about 40 minutes away from Bangkok when it hit "clear air turbulence," which is undetectable by weather radar.

As a result, passengers were not warned to fasten their seat belts on time.
