Ohio passengers demand answers after reporting injuries in "terrifying" flight

Passengers say the turbulence triggered medical conditions including what appeared to be a woman's seizure and a pregnant woman who started bleeding.

Several Frontier Airline passengers are demanding answers after several people were hurt during a flight from Las Vegas to Cleveland.

"Screaming bloody murder, praying, crying, the lady behind us, you could hear her trying to gasp for air," passenger Jason Berman of Avon told reporters in Cleveland. "She was having an anxiety attack."

Passengers say the turbulence triggered medical conditions including what appeared to be a woman's seizure and a pregnant woman who started bleeding.

Frontier Airlines says take-off was safe. Some people on board say the flight should have been canceled.

"We should have never been on the flight to begin with," passenger Nancy Berman said. "They obviously knew there was high winds and we took off anyway."

Frontier Airlines responded in a statement to a CBS affiliate in Las Vegas by saying, "There was no reports of severe turbulence from the crew, the diversion was for an onboard medical situation. It was windy in Las Vegas last night which may have made it a little bumpy but it was not a turbulence event."
