Delta Flight 2353 Passengers May Have Psychological Injuries

Delta Airlines

Those onboard Delta flight 2353 from Atlanta to Ft Lauderdale on Sept. 19, 2019 may have suffered serious psychological injuries as the result of the rapid descent of the Boeing 767 aircraft of 30,000 feet in under 8 minutes, as the possible result of depressurization issues. Thankfully, it appears no one suffered serious physical injuries, but the psychological injuries resulting from such an occurrence should not be minimized. The passengers obviously were unaware of the cause of the descent and, to them, it appeared they were about to crash. Those onboard flight 2353 described a scene of chaos and told of texting their loved ones.

Delta 2353 is reminiscent of Qantas flight 72 in which Wisner Law Firm represented over 160 passengers and crew. While that aircraft was cruising at 37,000 feet in its flight from Singapore to Perth, Australia, the aircraft abruptly pitched nose-down and dropped 690 feet in approximately 23 seconds, due to a mechanical malfunction. The aircraft returned to 37,000 feet and within minutes another pitch-down event occurred in which the aircraft dropped approximately 400 feet in approximately 15 seconds. Passengers and crew sustained serious physical and psychological injuries, including nightmares, flashbacks and a fear of flying.
