Eight people have been hospitalized after suffering injuries during turbulence on a flight from Doha, Qatar, to Dublin on Sunday, May 26.

Dublin Airport Authority (daa) said Qatar Airways flight QR107 "landed safely as scheduled at Dublin Airport shortly before 13.00."

The daa said six passengers and six crew members were injured when the flight experienced "turbulence over Turkey", around two hours into the flight. 

"Upon landing, the aircraft was met by emergency services, including airport police and our fire and rescue department, due to six passengers and six crew (12 total) on board reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey," daa said in a statement. 

"All passengers were assessed for injury prior to disembarking the aircraft. Eight passengers were subsequently taken to hospital."

Paul Mocc, a passenger onboard the flight, told RTÉ News that he saw passengers "hitting the roof" during the turbulence, adding that he also saw several crew members dressed in bandages. 

"I had my seatbelt on at the time, but they were serving food at the time so a lot of the crew were injured," Mocc told RTÉ News. 

Another passenger, named Cathal, told RTÉ that there was "food all over the plane" during the incident. 

Emma Rose Power and Conor Buckley were traveling from Bangkok to Dublin via Qatar when the incident took place said a flight attendant went "up in the air" during the incident. 

Power added that there was a "look of panic on everyone's faces". 

The incident took place just five days after a passenger was killed on board a Singapore Airlines flight that encountered turbulence between London and Singapore. 

The man, who was a British citizen, died of a suspected heart attack, according to widespread reports. 

More than 100 people were injured in the incident, which occurred while the flight crew was serving breakfast. The pilots subsequently requested an emergency stop in Bangkok. 

“It was really scary”.
