Turbulence injures at least 25 on flight into New York

Twenty-nine passengers are being treated for injuries sustained during major turbulence on a Turkish Airlines flight en route to John F Kennedy International Airport, authorities say.

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.

Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman said one injury was a broken leg. Officials said it might have been a flight crew member.

Turkish Airlines Flight 1 encountered the turbulence about 45 minutes before landing at JFK, Coleman said.

The Port Authority spokesman says other airport operations were not affected.
