Flight Attendant Hurt as Turbulence Shakes Airliner

Associated Press

Severe turbulence rocked an American Airlines Boeing 767 as it was descending toward O'Hare International Airport, injuring a flight attendant, authorities said.

Vicky Jalloway, 41, of San Diego was tossed about in the cabin of Flight 350 from Dallas-Fort Worth last week and suffered leg injuries, said American spokeswoman Mary O'Neill.

Jalloway was in fair condition Friday after surgery on her right knee at Chicago's Resurrection Hospital, hospital spokeswoman Janice Youngwith said.
