Twenty people who travelled on board the Singapore Airlines flight that experienced turbulence before making an emergency landing in Bangkok on Tuesday are in intensive care in hospitals in the Thai capital, the establishments announced on Wednesday May 22.

 
The patients from Australia, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and the Philippines were in the intensive care units of Samitivej Srinakarin and Samitivej Sukhumvit hospitals, a spokesman for the hospital group told AFP.
 
Singapore Airlines flight SQ321, carrying 211 passengers and 18 crew, experienced extreme and sudden turbulence at 11,000 meters above Burma ten hours after takeoff, suddenly rising and plunging several times.
 
A 73-year-old British passenger died on board the London-Singapore flight, and 104 others were injured. On Wednesday, 131 passengers and 12 crew members - the majority of those on board - were finally able to land in Singapore via another flight.
