Boeing Flight in Severe Turbulence, Video Shows Passenger Stuck in Ceiling

A transatlantic passenger is feeling lucky to be alive after severe turbulence sent him hurtling through the cabin of a Boeing jet and planted him in the airliner's ceiling.

A video shows the man's feet sticking out from above an overhead bin. His fellow passengers were able to dislodge him and get him back into his seat.

"He flew and got stuck in the roof, in the bin," a passenger sat close to him told Uruguayan TV.

The incident went down Monday aboard Air Europa's flight UX045 from Madrid to Montevideo, Uruguay.

Other passengers were also thrown out of their seats when the plane hit turbulence over the Atlantic. 30 out of the 325 passengers were injured during the ordeal.

Other footage taken by passengers shows ceiling panels torn off by the impact of the turbulence, oxygen masks dandling overhead, and at least one destroyed seat.

Passengers described the ordeal to local Uruguayan outlets as resembling a horror movie and likened it to a near-death experience.
