AVHerald reports a passenger on board Japan Airlines flight was severely burnt by hot tea which was spilt over her.
JL950 from Seoul, South Korea to Tokyo Narita, Japan, with 330 people on board, was about 30 minutes into the flight and meal service had just started, when one of the trolleys rolled away, struck a seat and poured the whole pot of hot tea over the right arm of a 23 year old female passenger. The crew decided to continue to Narita, where the Korean speaking passenger was admitted to hospital with reportedly severe burns.
The Japanese Transportation Safety Board has launched an investigation in cooperation with Authorities in South Korea.
This has to be one the more unusual accidents I have heard about. I sure feel sorry for the young lady, and hope JAL compensates her apart from the major plastic surgery she will surely need.
