JBU53 Medical Emergency Due To Turbulence
« on: March 26, 2024, 10:31:44 AM »
JBU53 had just departed KJFK on March 23 and was enroute to KPBI when they encountered severe turbulence at FL280 that resulted in the injury of a flight attendant.  The flight crew ultimately declared a medical emergency and decided to divert to KRIC.  The flight landed safely a short time later.  Unfortunately, there was no LiveATC coverage after the flight was handed off to ZDC 127.75
