OMG! This is so sad!
The couple told us in a statement:

A baby was flung out of its mother's arms and five people were sent to hospitals due to injuries they suffered during an incredibly scary United Airlines flight on Monday!
The scenario went like this…
The Boeing 737 en route to Billings, Montana suddenly and intensely dropped around 1:30 p.m.—forcing the flight's captain to declare a medical emergency after multiple passengers went flying through the cabin, resulting in injury.
"There was a gal in front of us. She went up, her head went through the roof, and there was a woman screaming for her baby. What really kind of grabbed your heart was the woman hollering for her baby. She was terrified."
Another passenger confessed that the baby was launched into a nearby seat, but looked to be unharmed:
"I didn't have my seat belt on, so I hit my head pretty hard, but what hurts is my lower back and hips."
This is beyond scary!
If there was ever a reason to wear your seatbelt mid-flight, it's this crazy and unpredictable moment!
We're so glad no one was seriously injured, including the baby!
