Although the flight landed safely at 5:30pm local time, at least thirty-two people were injured in the mid-air mayhem, New York Fire Department said.

Others were said to have suffered bumps, bruises and cuts. "I had one of the ladies next to me, she really fell down from her seat on the floor and all her back was completely bloody, while someone that was working in the airplane, she cracked her leg I think completely".

The plane was carrying more than 300 passengers and crew members.
