Panicked tourists 'screamed and cried' as a passenger jet on its way from Turkey to Russia suddenly dropped more than 30,000ft after a sudden loss of cabin pressure. The Onur Air Airbus 321 with 226 passengers and eight crew dropped from 32,800ft to just 1,640ft 'within five minutes', witnesses said. Video footage, shot by passengers after an emergency landing at Volgograd airport in southern Russia, shows oxygen masks dangling from the ceiling. Some passengers needed medical and psychological help after the 'horrible' incident, said an airport source. The Turkish plane was en route from Antalya to Chelyabinsk in the Russian Urals region when it got into trouble. Unconfirmed reports said there was an engine failure. A woman passenger said: 'It was so scary. People on board panicked. Everyone was asleep when oxygen masks came down, children started to scream.' Another passenger said: 'Flight Antalya to Chelyabinsk. Loss of cabin pressure. 'Descending from 10,000 metres to 500 metres within five minutes, very scary!' Source
