MIAMI — An American Airlines spokeswoman says three crew members aboard a Brazil-to-Miami flight have been injured due to turbulence during the trip.

Fagan said three flight attendants were injured "to some degree" during the Sunday flight, which landed just after 6:30 p.m. EST. The passenger jet was carrying 136 passengers and nine crew members.

Miami airport spokeswoman Maria Levrant said the injured crew members were taken to local hospitals for treatment. No other information was released about the severity of their injuries.
