Rostik Rusev, who is from Ukraine but lives in Hackensack, New Jersey, was on an Aeroflot flight from Moscow to New Jersey on Monday that hit turbulence.

Rusev told CNN:

ìWe were flying from Moscow to Bangkok and what happened was about an hour before we were supposed to land we hit turbulence with no warning or anything.î

ìIt was so bad it actually threw us out of our seats, it lasted for about ten seconds, the plane was being thrown everywhere.î

ìThere was blood on the ceiling, people with broken noses, babies who were hurt, it was horrible. It came out of nowhere it was like driving a care and a tire suddenly bursts.î

ìThe aircraft personnel couldnít have been more professional, they were heroes in everything they were doing.î

Rusev also provided CNN with a picture showing blood on one of the overhead compartments. This was a result of people being thrown out of their seats and hitting the ceiling, Rusev said.
