LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Severe turbulence forced an American Airlines plane to make an emergency landing in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Flight 3358 was headed to Memphis, Tennessee from Dallas, Texas Wednesday when it encountered bad weather.

The ride was so rough, the turbulence caused a beverage cart to fly into the air, spilling drinks in the cabin and tearing the side of a seat. Two flight attendants were taken to a hospital in Little Rock with minor injuries.

The remaining passengers were put on another flight.
