In a horrific accident on a six-lane motorway in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, six New York-based American Airlines flight attendants sustained significant injuries.
The accident happened when the group was traveling in a tiny bus as part of a prearranged tour to the Taj Mahal, a famous landmark, during a layover.
Four flight attendants and two pilots composed the injured aircrew. All are thought to be American citizens. Following the terrible tragedy on January 9, it is reported that two of the injured were taken to the hospital in severe conditions.
The victims’ ages reportedly vary from 22 to 60, according to local media sources. Personal information and graphic images of the accident have not been released at the families of the victims’ request.
Three of the sufferers were able to return to the United States, but the other three are still receiving medical care in an Indian hospital because they are too ill to be flown home.
According to reports, the tragedy happened on Monday after a heavy fog blanketed the Yamuna Expressway. Due to low visibility, the bus carrying the passengers collided with a container, severely damaging the front of the vehicle.
Due to injuries, he received in the collision, the bus driver also required hospital treatment.
The Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) reported that shortly after the event, a Critical Incident Response Team was sent to India and that efforts are still being made to return the injured crew members to the United States as soon as possible.
