An air hostess has suffered serious injuries after falling off an Air India plane in a freak accident during take-off at Mumbai's international airport this morning. Harsha Lobo, 53, is in hospital with multiple fractures. She fell off while "closing the door of the aircraft" before take-off, the airline said in a statement, adding that it was investigating why. Flight AI 864 from Mumbai to New Delhi was about to take off at about 7 am when Ms Lobo fell several metres to the hard tarmac. The flight was delayed for over an hour.
