Airplane Passengers Suffer Injuries From Pilot Mistake

Some very unlucky passengers on a flight recently began bleeding from their noses and ears when a pilot “forgot” to flick a switch regulating cabin pressure, according to reports.

Jet Airways Flight 9W 697 from Mumbai to Jaipur was forced to turn around and go back shortly after takeoff on Thursday, when the airplane completely lost pressure, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported.

The video from inside the eerily calm cabin shows the oxygen masks being deployed and passengers slowly putting them on.

“Panic situation,” wrote one person. Another added, “Scores of passengers including me bleeding from nose… no staff to help… no announcement on board to wear the oxygen mask. Passenger safety completely ignored.”

More than 30 of the 166 passengers on board suffered bleeding and headaches, and had to be treated when the flight landed back at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, according to a statement by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

Larit Gupta, a senior official with the department, told the Hindustan Times newspaper that the crew had forgotten to activate a switch to maintain cabin pressure.

It seems like there are new reports of suspicious or dangerous plane activity nearly every day, so unfortunately, this is nothing new.

Most recently, celebrities including Post Malone and Ray J. and Princess have been forced to take emergency landings on their private planes due to unsafe situations up in the air. In other celebrity flight news, Ty Dolla $ign was being put on all types of blast when he reportedly caused a ruckus on his flight over a dog allergy.

But celebrities aren’t the only ones experiencing this airline debacles–one fan recently stole a plane in an attempt to fly himself to the Beyonce & Jay Z On The Run II Tour, which didn’t go as planned.

If there’s one thing we can count on in this world, it’s plane mishaps.
