The flight from the Dominican Republic hit the turbulence over the Bahamas, and the plane was diverted to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
The airline says the charter flight operated for Apple Vacations had 137 passengers and six crew members.
The Broward County sheriff’s office says the injuries weren’t life-threatening. The most seriously hurt was a flight attendant who had head injuries. The airline arranged other flights for the passengers, but some opted to drive home.
