At least five crew members and one passenger needed medical treatment after their Boeing 777 ran into severe turbulence on Monday’s Thai Airways flight from Jakarta to Bangkok.

Airline staffer Kru P’Birth uploaded photos on Facebook that showed the messy aftermath of the clear-air turbulence, which caused service trolleys, luggage and other personal items to be tossed around the cabin as 72 passengers and 12 flight crew members struggled to hold on.
