An American Airlines plane over the Atlantic Ocean.

The flight encountered "brief" turbulence shortly before landing that apparently was powerful enough to injure three passengers and seven crew members.

The shaky in-bound plane encountered "severe turbulence" right before flight 759 touched down at Philadelphia International Airport.

'Turbulence on flight was so insane and unexpected a flight attendant dislocated his shoulder'.

Jessica Huseman, a reporter, tweeted from aboard the plane about her experience.

The flight was en route from Athens, Greece and experienced the turbulence shortly before landing at Philadelphia International Airport around 3:45 P.M.

She also posted an image of coffee trapped inside the lighting system on board the aircraft and an update on how passengers used their fleece blankets to help clean the ceiling after their drinks went flying.

6ABC News also received the following statement from American Airlines.

American Airlines says 10 people on a flight from Greece to Philadelphia were injured during severe turbulence. The seatbelt sign was on at the time, according to the airline.

Of the almost 300 people on board American Airlines flight 759, three passengers and seven crew members were evaluated, the airline said in a statement.
