This Has Been A Week For Turbulance

Paramedics at Miami International Airport are treating several passengers who complained of bumps and bruises due to turbulence on a flight from Argentina.

Miami-Dade County Fire Rescue spokesman Arnold Piedrahita says some patients were taken to the hospital Friday morning, at least one on a stretcher. He couldn't say how many passengers are being treated.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson says 227 passengers and crew were on American Airlines Flight 908, which arrived from Buenos Aires before 7 a.m.

In a related story, traffic at Miami's airport was backed up due to congestion caused by thousands of personal injury lawyers waiting for passengers from the flight to disembark.
