JetBlue flight is forced to make emergency landing in South Dakota

Several people including children hit the cabin roof of a JetBlue flight forced into an emergency landing, while others were violently thrown out of their seats in severe turbulence as the plane dropped ’50 storeys like an out of control elevator’, according to a passenger.

As terrified children screamed during the mid-air drama, shocked passengers say they witnessed others ‘floating’ or ‘bouncing’ around and hitting the plane so hard dents were left in the roof and overhead compartments.

Rhonda Lynam, from Pebble Beach, California, told MailOnline that she thought she was going to die during the drama, which forced Flight 429 from Boston to Sacramento to divert to an airport in Rapid City, South Dakota, about 7.30pm on Thursday.

Hospital staff say 24 passengers and crew were treated for injuries following the drama, including Ms Lynam and her mother Therese, who both suffered neck problems requiring further treatment.

Ms Lynam described the moment the turbulence turned nasty in horrifying detail.

‘We were told to keep our seat belts on because we have heavy turbulence,’ Ms Lynam told MailOnline.
