CBCN - Sunday, May 26, 2024 - 12:00 a.m. (ET) - Segment #27

were injured I would wager were not fastening their seat belts. With this turbulence occurring, it can happen suddenly without any warning. If you're not strapped in there's a good chance you'll get brain and upper spinal injuries. While you're seated, keep that belt fastened. Keep it termly fastened. If you're in a car wreck, you won't don't want to have a loosely fastened seat belt. >> Linda: the turbulence that they hit, are there any clues that you can glean from what we're hearing about the flight about what this airplane encountered? >> Well, here's the situation. If you have no turbulence, if flying through area of thunderstorms. You know the storms are there. You warn the people what to expect. Usually list some turbulence associated with it. When you get through, you can turn the sign off. You don't know when to turn the seat belt sign on. If you leave it on all the time, people are going to ignore it. They'll get up and walk anyway to use the restroom. You can expect the seat belt sign won't be on more than likely when you encounter this unexpected turbulence. >> Linda: if you can't see it coming, clear turbulence as a pilot, what can you do beyond quickly turning that seat belt light on? >> Well, by then it's too late. We have speeds called turbulence penetration speeds. If we had anticipated the turbulence, we could have slowed the airplane to that particular speed. Because there's no warning, we can't do anything. Once the turbulence occurs, turn on the seat belt sign on it's really too late. >> Linda: we had a pretty similar incident even more severe earlier this week. A man dying of suspected heart attack, dozens injured in a flight to singapore. Given that these incidents happened just days apart and we heard of recent incidents that are similar as well. How do you think this is affecting the public's perception about flight safety? >> Well, you're going to incur a certain amount of turbulence as well as normal turbulence. If you fasten your seat belt, it's probably not going to bother you. It's the folks that didn't do that that got injured. It's easy to prevent injury. That's the main takeaway. Passengers have to be prepared at any time to anticipate some turbulence. >> Linda: we've reports that with climate change, these types of incidents are likely to become more common. We're more likely to see turbulence. Is there anything airlines can do to prepare for increased incidents like this? >> Well, the reason there's more turbulence incidents because there's more flights now. Singapore airlines just made a change in their policy. Now, they won't serve hot drinks or meals while the seat belts sign is on. That keeps the flight attendants seated during periods of time expected or known turbulence. >> Linda: is there a need change how equipped airplanes specifically are to weather this turbulence. You heard albert talking about multi-scan radar turbulence detection and information sharing between airlines. Is all of this enough or more need to be done as we see more incidents of this? >> The sharing of information between airplanes has been done for generations. If you encounter turbulence, you announce it, state what flight level you're on and how long it lasted and how bad it was. Other than that, turbulence detection equipment is long way away from being practical or being disseminated in an actual aircraft. >> Linda: keith mackey I want to thank you for your insights boo this incident. For the first time in months, hamas has hit israel with fresh rocket attack. The militant group says it launched a large barrage of projectiles on tel-aviv from rafah. J.T. journalist irris makler is here with the details. Bring us up to speed here. >> Reporter: what we know is

that the barrage of something like eight rockets, crossed into israeli airspace. Most of people were intercepted. There was minor injuries, minor damage. Very few injuries to people. Nevertheless, most of that was injured from shrapnel. Israelis were running to bomb shelters. Airport was closed. It did have an impact on israel. What hamas said it's interesting. It's been four months since the last barrage to central israel. Hamas claimed responsibility. They said they were doing it in retaliation to israel's massacre. What israel says is this. They are firing from rafah. That's also significant. They are firing from rafah as israeli troops advance. They know once those rockets and weapons are located, they will destroy them. They are using it before they can be destroyed. Nevertheless, they have given some ammunition to right wing politicians in israel who say how do you stop fighting in rafah when there's still sufficient weapons there to be fired into central israel? >> Linda: this latest escalation came after eight trucks came through israel to bypass the rafah crossing through egypt. What can you tell us about that? >> Reporter: hundreds of truckers were lined outside the rafah crossing since israel took that crossing on may 6th. It's not far, 5 kilometres down the road to an israeli border crossing. They are going in from there. Some 200 trucks ready to go in. Much of the food has already spoiled. We have heard from palestinian sources inside the gaza strip that eight trucks had gone in with fuel and cooking gas. That is significant. What's coming in from the other pier that the U.S. set up is a smaller amount of aid. It's more expensive to get in. It doesn't come in the same quantity. Everybody is advocating for aid to come in by land through the old system through these border crossings. However, the problem is distribution. What we're -- once it gets in it's hard to get it out. Especially to the something like 900,000 palestinians estimated to be on the coast having fled rafah. How do you get them to the coastal area. There's nothing there but the deputies they -- tents they put up. There's no infrastructure. All of those issues, has to be said the fact that some aid is going in. >> Linda: that's irris makler in jerusalem. For more on the situation in gaza, we spoke earlier with a medical team leader in gaza for doctors without borders. She told us about her recent experience doing humanitarian work there. >> We witnessed was something unprecedented. This 700,000 people leaving rafah. [ indiscernible ] they were having access to food supply in rafah. Food supply disappears because there's not enough aid coming in. This aid is not reaching them. They want the war to stop. They can't take it anymore. It's extremely difficult on a daily basis to witness that. It's extremely frustrating for us to find a solution for the need. There's nothing to eat. Just how we get in. That is beyond our means in terms of humanitarian workers. It's extremely frustrating to

know we have the solution and it's not being put in place. >> Linda: that was medical team leader in gaza for doctors without borders. Also today at the university of toronto, organizers from the pro-palestinian encampment there presented their counter proposal for school officials to the media. >> This process is slow. Bureaucratic and archaic. We reject playing a game that will go nowhere. Our counteroffer is built on the fact that the office of the president has the ability to create new processes and make decisions on divestments. >> Linda: they want the university of toronto to divest fully from israel and suspend any ties to the country. They plan to present this to school officials. Protesters have been issued a trespass notice and told to leave by 8:00 tomorrow morning. University of toronto presented an offer last week. The school says any claims it has investments in weapons manufacturing companies in israel have no basis in fact. Also in toronto, police are searching for multiple suspects who fired gunshots at a jewish girl elementary school. >> Suspects arrived at the school in a vehicle. Dark coloured vehicle. They exited the vehicle and opened fire at the school causing damage to the front of the school. The suspect then got back in the vehicle and left the area. There were no reported sound of gunshots at the time. There was no reported injuries. >> Linda: the force hate crime unit is helping with the investigation and police are increasing their presence in the local community. Prime minster justin trudeau and ontario premier doug ford have taken to social media to condemn the shooting and call it an act of anti-semitism. Stay with us. More news ahead.

If minnesota wins today, they'll take the best of five series and hoist the walter cup. Boston, of course, will be looking to extend the series with a win on the road and if that happens, the fifth and deciding game would take place in boston on wednesday. The puck drops for game four today at 4:00 P.M. local time in st. Paul, minnesota. In the nhl, the oilers hoping to keep their winning momentum going for game two against the stars in dallas. Came up a little short. Cbc's emily fitzpatrick has the details from edmonton. >> Reporter: while it wasn't a result edmonton oiler fans were hoping for. Dallas ended up winning game two of the western conference finals. It was quite a match. Within seconds of the first period, dallas scored first. It wasn't long before connor brown responded and tied it up 1-1. It wasn't until the 3rd period that dallas scored again and taking it to 2-1. Finally minute left they scored again. Securing the win 3-1 against the edmonton oilers. What is good news how many edmonton oiler fans came out osupport the team. Downtown was full of oiler fans wearing jerseys, going to various watch parties. The watch party sold out. People started lining up hours before the game to get in. By faceoff it was at capacity. Regardless of where the game was being played, the oiler fans came out to support their team. It was an evenly matched game. There's some fear going into this. Dallas was on a run. They took out the last two winners of the stanley cup in record time. There was some fear going up against the dallas stars. The thing is, both teams are hungry to move on to the stanley cup finals. Edmonton hasn't won a stanley cup since 1990. Dallas stars hasn't won one since 1999. Both teams are hungry for a win here. They are going to do what it takes to come out on top. But, game three will be on monday and will be played in edmonton. The team finally gets a home ice advantage. I'm sure the fans that came out tonight will be back to support their edmonton oilers.

Local officials say the attack wounded 43 people. Temperatures are expected to hit 50° in some parts of pakistan as an intense heat wave rolls through the country. Hospitals have witnessed a spike in patients admitted with heatstroke and heat exhaustion over the last week. The extreme temperatures are due to climate change.

Cbc's albert delitala is looking into what happened. >> Reporter: 12 people were injured when that qatar airways flight hit turbulence on its way to dublin. The airport does say that it landed safely and on time. But certainly, some scary moments. Let's show you on a map just where it happened. The airport confirms the qatar flight over turkiye. The incident reportedly lasting less than 20 seconds according to passengers. It happened during the food and drink service on the plane. Six passengers and six crew reported injuries. You can see some of the scenes there after that plane safely landed meeting emergency crew when it did on the ground. Here's some passengers who spoke to irish public broadcaster R.T.E. after they got off the plane. >> We were all over the plane and everywhere. [ indiscernible ] >> Flight attendant went into the air. Food went everywhere. It was panic everywhere. >> Reporter: the airline calls the injuries minor and said that those who were injured are receiving medical attention. It didn't directly comment on the turbulence. It did say that an internal investigation is happening into that incident. >> Linda: sounds like a pretty harrowing incident according to the passengers on that flight. It also sounds like we're hearing about these things more frequently lately. This comes just days after a fatal incident on a singapore airlines flight. Tell us more about that. >> Reporter: that was on tuesday singapore airlines flight. That flight hit severe turbulence on its way to singapore from london. A 73-year-old british man died of suspected heart attack. You can see some of the scenes on that plane after all of that. 20 people sent to the I.C.U. the U.S. transportation safety board says turbulence is the most common kind of airplane incident. Most of those incidents result in one or more serious injuries. One airline say the analyst says turbulence is becoming more common with climate change. That airlines are adjusting their planes accordingly. >> Over the last 20 years, [ indiscernible ] multiscan, which is mentioned really good picture of what the weather is like ahead. They are making progress into turbulence detection as well. Also, airlines are now sharing data between aircraft encounters with turbulence everybody can be advised that's on that same flight track. >> Reporter: in terms of that singapore airline incident, the airlines says it is cooperating with investigators on the investigation there. That plane that returned to singapore today from bangkok where it made that emergency landing. Many of the passengers remain in bangkok where they are being treated. >> Linda: that was cbc's albert delitala. Keith mackey the former airline pilot and aviation expert.
