Miami, FL - An Argentine airline says fifteen passengers aboard a flight from Miami to Buenos Aires suffered minor injuries after their plane hit turbulence.

Eight of the passengers were taken in for a second check-up.

Aerolineas Argentina said in a statement Thursday that the passengers were aboard Flight 1303 when their plane hit turbulence of “severe intensity.”

“The incident occurred in the flight phase called ‘cruise’ and was immediately reported by the captain in charge of the aircraft,” it said. “Once the turbulence zone was crossed, the crew in charge of the flight dedicated themselves to assisting the injured passengers and attending to the 192 passengers.”

The airline said medical assistance teams were on hand upon the flight’s arrival at the Ezeiza airport on the outskirts Buenos Aires.
