Original story by Simon Hradecky on The Aviation Herald.

A United Boeing 737-900, registration N69816 performing flight UA-1654 from Seattle,WA (USA) to Chicago O’Hare,IL (USA), was enroute at FL330 about 270nm east of Seattle when a flight attendant suffered a serious leg injury. About 10 minutes later the crew decided to turn around, descended the aircraft to FL280 and FL220 and returned to Seattle for a safe landing about one hour after the flight attendant received the injury.

The FAA reported: “WHILE ENROUTE 1 FLIGHT ATTENDANT SUSTAINED A SERIOUS LEG INJURY”, the aircraft returned to Seattle. The occurrence was rated an accident.

The flight was cancelled.
