Russian Airline Stewardess Falls From Plane Onto Runway at Dubai Airport

A Ural Airlines stewardess on Monday fell out of an aircraft onto the runway at an airport in Dubai after a catering truck smashed into the plane.

The woman was rushed to the hospital where she underwent an operation. She is currently in a stable condition, an airline spokesman told Interfax.
