3 on Delta flight sent to hospital after turbulence forces emergency landing

Two customers and one flight attendant were taken to

Five passengers suffered minor injuries Wednesday when a Delta Air Lines flight headed from Southern California to Seattle encountered severe turbulence in a winter storm and was forced to make an emergency landing in Reno.

Flight 5763, a regional flight operated by Compass Airlines, was en route from Southern California's Orange County to Seattle when the turbulence hit; a storm is now hitting the Lake Tahoe area, and the National Weather Service has warned that "this is a particularly risky situation for aviation in the lee of the Sierra over the next few days".

The turbulence was so bad that it caused a flight attendant's drinks cart to flip over in the aisle, dislodging its shelves and contents, according passengers onboard. He posted the video on Twitter.

Cellphone video from one passenger captured the state of the plane, a Compass Airlines flight operating as Delta from John Wayne Airport in Orange County to Seattle-Tacoma Airport, moments before it landed safely in Reno.

Reno-Tahoe International Airport spokesman Brian Kulpin said three of the passengers were transported to a local hospital Wednesday where their conditions were not immediately known. Customers were set to board an alternate flight to Seattle later in the day.

Passengers were given pizza and drinks while they waited for another flight.

"I was sitting toward the back of the plane, so I saw the drink cart hit the ceiling, along with the flight attendant who was doing the drink service, and that. that was incredible just to see all that happening, and then you could see the people who aren't belted in".

"Delta is making resources available to take care of and support our customers", the airline said in a statement to NBC News.

Passenger Barbara Belcher tweeted, "Chaotic". Two other passengers were also injured but were treated at the scene. A winter-storm warning was in effect for the Lake Tahoe area through 11 p.m. Thursday.
