    Chicago Fire Department officials confirmed that they treated several passengers aboard American Eagle Flight 3720 that was heading to Chicago today from New Orleans. The flight experienced “severe turbulence” while in flight that led to one passenger requiring to be taken to a local Chicago hospital. A spokesman for the Fire Department said that they experienced head, neck and back injuries. At least three people were injured, according to reports. The flight reportedly left New Orleans’ Louis Armstrong International Airport about 7:30 a.m. this morning and landed at O’Hare International Airport at 9:30 a.m. American Airlines told the press that 18 passengers were aboard that flight along with four crew members on the Bombardier CRJ-700 aircraft. Earlier today in Japan, a man in his 60s was reportedly taken to a hospital following an emergency landing of a 787 Dreamliner on a local flight there. All 129 passengers and eight crew members were forced to exit the aircraft on an emergency slide. The man reportedly suffered minor hip injuries. This latest incident led to two major Japan airlines, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines, to ground all 787 flights while an investigation is underway of the 787 aircraft that has experienced many problems in the past few weeks alone.
