Passengers aboard a Delta flight from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale experienced a horrifying seven minutes when the plane dropped almost 30,000 feet in about seven minutes.
Flight 2353 was halfway through its journey Wednesday when the pilots made a “controlled descent” from the cruising altitude of 39,000 feet to 10,000 feet, Delta rep Drake Castaneda told The Post on Thursday.
“Out of nowhere, I felt what felt like a sort of a rapid descent,” passenger Harris DeWoskin said, according to WFTS. “We started dropping in altitude and then the oxygen masks dropped from the top of the plane. Chaos sort of ensued amongst the passengers.”
He added: “One of the flight attendants, I believe, grabbed the intercom and was just repeating over the intercom stating, ‘Do not panic! Do not panic!’ But, obviously, it’s a hectic moment so, the passengers around me, a lot of people, were kind of hyperventilating.”
