An episode of severe turbulence injured at least 10 people on board a United Airlines flight last month. Nine passengers and one crew member needed medical attention on the ground after the flight from Panama City, Panama (PTY), to Houston (IAH) encountered turbulence over Mexico.

“United Flight 1031 experienced turbulence while en route from Panama City, Panama to Houston,” the airline confirmed in a statement to Business Insider. “Paramedics met the aircraft to provide medical care and initial reports are that nine customers and one crew member were transported to the hospital for evaluation. Our thoughts and concerns are with those who were injured and our team is reaching out directly to our customers to provide further care and support.”

The event came on the heels of a similar situation on China Eastern Airlines two days prior. The flight experienced turbulence en route from Paris (CDG) to China. Several people were injured, with four considered serious.

Turbulence is naturally occurring and does not threaten to crash a plane; it rarely results in injury.
