-
Investigations are underway to determine the causes of the incident that occurred on a Singapore Airlines flight on Tuesday in London and Singapore, leaving 1 dead and dozens injured.

The airline's flight SQ321 was traveling from London's Heathrow Airport to Singapore, with 211 passengers and 18 crew on board, when it experienced turbulence on Tuesday over the Andaman Sea. An elderly British man was killed when the plane suddenly nosedived.

The Boeing 777 descended to 6,000 feet (about 1,830 meters) in about three minutes, the company said.

The captain diverted the plane to Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport, where medical teams examined those on board.

Hospital authorities in Bangkok released updated figures on Wednesday.

Eighty-five patients were brought in for treatment, 27 people were discharged from hospital and 20 others remain in intensive care.

The patients in intensive care include six Britons, six Malaysians, three Australians, two Singaporeans and one person each from Hong Kong, New Zealand and the Philippines.

Relatives of the injured began to arrive. This family from the United Kingdom came to see their parents, who were both injured in the incident.
