BOSTON (CBS) – Severe turbulence rocked two planes that landed at Logan Airport late Sunday.

A total of 20 people were hurt.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports

Nine people on a Jet Blue flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico were slightly injured, including one who was burned by hot coffee.

Later, a Lufthansa flight headed to Munich, Germany from Charlotte, North Carolina had to make an emergency landing at Logan after it hit some turbulence.

WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi reports

11 people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

    One reason I would sooner take a train or bus then a plane.

      As if a TSA groping isn’t reason enough in the first place not to want to fly?!

    • whatsuphonky

      It was Gov Patrick’s hot air in illegal immigration that caused the turbulence.

      Good look getting to Tokyo.

        You haven’t gotten enough of a radiation dose? You want to go to Tokyo for more? You do live on the east coast then.

    Perhaps Ellen was confused by the Intercontinental Train commnent made the smartest president. There is not a rail connection from America to Puerto Rico or Germany.

    Turbulence? Do you mean the molesting by the TSA? Perverted TSA, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

    Heh, Boston. Home of fake car-accident injuries.

    Likely the same people that complain when they get served tap water instead of Evian.

    I was on a flight that dropped 3,000 ft. Air pressure pushed the plane down like a stone for over a half mile! People were on the ceiling, absolute chaos. The plane finally leveled out, the pilot explained the reason for the sudden and violent drop. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt. It was a long time before I flew again & I need a handful of Valium to do it.

      Kevin – understandable, and sounds terrible.. However, that drive to your local Target is about 30,000x more dangerous.

  • emom

    Ah thats why you should keep your seatbelt on at all times,,, They do recomend it,,,,, the skys are full of turbulance… the pilots can not always see it or even control it.
