LOS ANGELES -- An American Airlines flight from New York made an emergency landing Wednesday at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport after some flight attendants were injured when the plane hit turbulence.

American Airlines spokesman Tim Wagner says the 767 was climbing at 30,000 feet en route to Los Angeles when it experienced turbulence.

Wagner says the fasten-seatbelt sign was on and none of the flight's 137 passengers was injured.

As many as four of the nine flight attendants on Flight 117 received minor injuries, including bruises or strained necks.

The plane landed at O'Hare as a precaution so the injured flight attendants could receive medical care and, if necessary, new flight attendants could board the flight.
The New American is arriving.
