"I see she is on the floor", said Emdadul Haque who was a passenger on the plane.

They said at least two dozen passengers and crew suffered various injuries.

The airliner, carrying 326 passengers with a crew of 21, ran into "severe turbulence" about 45 minutes before landing at 5:35 p.m. EST (1035 GMT), Coleman said.

Turkish Airlines confirmed that its TK01 Istanbul-New York Flight encountered unusual turbulence.

The Port Authority said that 29 people were hurt, but those injuries were not life-threatening.

A video taken by a passenger aboard a Turkish Airlines flight captured faces of distress after severe turbulence tossed terrified passengers and crew as the plane passed over ME on Saturday.

"Then seeing blood all over".

The National Weather Service's Aviation Weather Center had issued an advisory for severe turbulence over New England on Saturday evening.

According to Storm Team A flight data, the plane flew directly in its approach to NY without making any deviations.

The incident comes just hours after neighboring Newark Airport was forced to close all of its runways after a flight from Montreal to Fort Lauderdale made an emergency landing due to smoke in the cargo hold.
