On 31 May, a British Airways Boeing 747 (G-CIVD) from London Heathrow to Washington Dulles D.C. took off uneventfully around 17:11 (UTC). One hour into flight BA293, however, a male flight attendant severely bumped his head on a overhead locker, knocking himself out in the process.

The crew could not help but dump fuel, and return to London for a safe landing at 20:00. Shortly after the landing, the poor steward was taken to hospital.

A British Airways spokesman said to British tabloid The Sun: “The safety and welfare of everyone on board our flights is always our priority, and thankfully injuries in flight are extremely rare.​

“The crew member was taken to hospital upon landing.
