A flight from Mumbai to Jaipu had to turn back after takeoff due to loss of cabin pressure.


Pilot error caused the Jet Airways flight 9W 697 to lose cabin pressure. An official of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation told reporters the cabin crew failed to flip a switch.

The plane landed safely and passengers, many of whom were suffering from bleeding ears and noses, were treated. Videos emerged online showing passengers wearing oxygen masks.

A statement from Jet Airways read, in part:

The B737 aircraft, with 166 guests and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai. All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc.

The airline said it was co-operating fully with the DGCA investigation. At least five passengers are being treated at Mumbai hospital.

According to Rajendra Patankar, COO at Dr Balabhai Nanavati hospital:

The patients are being evaluated by our ear, nose and throat consultant. They have suffered barotrauma of ears due to change in air pressure.

Many people thought the statement was a bit flippant.






Maybe they should rethink the statement. Whatever the case, they simply must do better.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
