Garuda flight attendant injured after wine chiller explodes mid-air

A flight attendant was severely injured when an on-board wine chiller exploded during a Garuda Indonesia flight, the airline said.

The plane was flying with 186 passengers from Melbourne to Jakarta on Saturday when the incident occurred, Garuda spokesman Benny Butarbutar said.

“There was a small explosion in the galley in the middle of the plane but it did not disrupt the flight,” which landed on time in Jakarta, he said.

The spokesman said it was not clear what caused the explosion and no passenger was hurt.

A flight attendant was injured when a pantry panel was blown off and hit her in the face, Butarbutar said.

She was in intensive care after surgery, he said.
