A spokesperson for EuroAirport told ABC News that 10 passengers were sent to local hospitals in Basel for treatment for minor injuries they suffered during the incident.

"The flight from Pristina with airline ALK experienced turbulence in the air around 20 minutes before landing," a EuroAirport spokesperson told ABC News. "The pilot alerted handling agents so that the airport firemen were immediately on the scene when the plane arrived."

ALK Airlines told ABC the crew knew there would be turbulence during the flight and that they were trying to collect all the drinks before the turbulence began.
