Hospital officials in Bangkok have shared more details about the extent of injures sustained on the Singapore Airlines flight hit by severe turbulence.

The incident led to the death of a 73-year old British man.

Twenty people remain in intensive care with spinal injuries including at least one flight attendant.

However, none are life-threatening, said Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital director Adinun Kittiratanapaibool.

They include six from the UK, six Malaysians, three Australians and two Singaporeans.

In total there are still more than 40 people in hospital as of Thursday.

Nine spinal surgeries have already been performed as well as operations for eight people with other injuries.

Aidinun said doctors have not ruled possible permanent spinal damage for some of the most serious cases.
