Three injured on Air India flight as another plane window detaches

A domestic Air India flight has added to an already eventful week in commercial aviation. 

Severe turbulence on a flight from from the north-western city of Amritsar to capital city Delhi saw a window detach at 15,000 feet - an event eerily similar to the Southwest Airlines 1380 incident last Tuesday. 

A video shows a flight attendant desperately attempting to fix a window panel on the 787 Dreamliner, which was violently shaken about shortly after take off last Thursday, the Daily Mail reported. 

The turbulence was said to have lasted from around 10 to 12 minutes, with three passengers being treated for injury on arrival.

Indian governmental bodies the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board said they are investigating. 

Last week in America a mother of two was killed on a flight from New York to Dallas.

The Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 saw its left engine explode, causing a window to smash mid-flight. 

Window seat passenger and mother-of-two Jennifer Riordan was almost sucked out of the plane, leaving her with fatal injuries.
