May 26, 2010, Montreal – Ten people suffered injuries, including broken bones, during severe turbulence on a London to Los Angeles that was diverted to Montreal.

United Airlines spokeswoman Sarah Massier says United Flight 935 reported severe turbulence over the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday.

The flight landed at Montreal's Trudeau Airport at about 1:15 p.m. ET and was met by several ambulances.

The airline says nine passengers and one crew member were treated and that none of the injuries were considered to be life-threatening.

One of the injured passengers was a pregnant woman.

The Boeing 777 aircraft was taken out of service and inspected for possible damage.

Massier says another plane was sent from Chicago to Montreal to take the passengers and crew to Los Angeles.

The plane landed in Los Angeles at around 10 p.m. ET Tuesday, around nine hours later than originally scheduled.
