In a freak accident, a cabin crew of a Mangaluru-bound Spicejet flight from Bengaluru was injured on Friday when she fell down during the push back of the aircraft. This prompted Bombardier Q400 aircraft to be taken back to the bay and the airline deplaned the injured crew for treatment and the same plane departed for Mangaluru at 8.45 am.

Confirming the incident, the airlines said, "A crew member of flight SG 1035 operating on the Bengaluru-Mangaluru route fell down during the push-back and sustained injuries."

The plane was then taken back to the bay and the flight departed for its destination at 8.45 am.
"During push back, a cabin crew suffered a minor bruise. As a precaution, the pilot decided to take the aircraft back to the bay," the airline said, adding the plane took off with a new crew member.
