Hong Kong - Two passengers and five flight attendants were injured Friday morning when a flight from Beijing to Hong Kong ran into heavy turbulence, a radio report said.
The seven injured people were taken to hospital for treatment after the plane landed in Hong Kong, the city's RTHK radio said, quoting carrier Dragonair. The extent of their injuries was unclear.
The airline said it was investigating the incident.
In 2003, 12 cabin crew were injured, two seriously, when a Dragonair flight from Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia to Hong Kong ran into severe turbulence.
Dragonair is based in Hong Kong and flies to cities across China and South-East Asia. It is a sister airline to Hong Kong's main airline Cathay Pacific.
