OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Two Southwest Airlines flight attendants were injured during turbulence and taken to a hospital in Oakland, Calif., the airline said.

The flight attendants were on Southwest Flight 1489 from Albuquerque to Oakland, which landed about 8:35 p.m. Thursday, an airline spokesman said, KTVU-TV, San Jose, reported.

A third flight attendant was injured but did not require hospitalization.

A passenger said the turbulence lasted about 10 seconds.
