Ural Airlines flight attendant falls from plane in Dubai

Late last month, a Ural Airlines flight attendant fell from an Airbus A321 onto the runway of Dubai Airport after a catering truck accidentally crashed into the aircraft.

The female flight attendant was rushed to a local hospital where she underwent a surgical procedure to treat her wounds. Hospital officials reported the woman is in stable condition, according to The Moscow Times.

Passengers aboard the aircraft were transferred to an auxiliary plane following the collision. A spokesperson reports that the damage sustained by the Airbus during the incident was substantial.

The flight from Dubai to Perm was delayed by nearly 12 hours following the crash, The Moscow Times reports.
