Severe turbulence forced an airplane an emergency landing Monday. Nearly 40 people were injured on the Air Europa Boeing 787 Dreamliner plane. It was flying Spain to Uruguay. Turbulence hit the plane the Atlantic, as it neared South America. Air traffic controllers told the pilot to make an emergency landing Natal, in north-eastern Brazil. Many of the injured were treated a hospital in Natal. Other injured people completed their journey to Uruguay's capital city Montevideo bus. Air Europa sent a new plane Madrid on Monday. It flew passengers who chose not to take the bus their final destination. The turbulence is the latest a string of mid-air occurrences to injure many people.

Turbulence is the violent or unsteady movement air. Modern aircraft are designed to survive strong winds and dangerous pockets air. It is extremely rare turbulence to damage an airplane. It is even rarer it to cause a plane to crash. The biggest danger to passengers comes not wearing a seat belt. Anyone standing in the airplane, or not wearing a seat belt while seated, can be thrown the cabin. They can suffer bad injuries by hitting their head overhead lockers or on the plane's ceiling. Scientists Reading University in the UK reported that severe turbulence is getting worse because of climate change. They said incidents increased 55 per cent between 1979 and 2020.
