Three passengers and seven crew members of American Airlines flight 759 from Greece to Philadephia were injured when the plane was hit by "severe turbulence" just before landing Saturday.

The flight, with 299 people on board, landed at Philadelphia International Airport at 3:10 p.m. EDT., Fox 29 reported.

The 10 injured had to be hospitalized on landing, the airline said in a statement, which did not provide any details regarding the extent or nature of the injuries.

Passengers said the turbulence lasted for about 15 seconds.

"I was looking forward and I just saw everything just move upwards about four feet," passenger Alex Ehmke said in a phone interview with NBC News. He added: "So, I saw drinks, you know, flying up against walls and up on the ceiling.”

"The gentleman directly behind us and diagonally behind us hit the ceiling himself," Ehmke said.

One of the passengers, Ervin Fang, also tweeted a video of the aftermath of the turbulence.

Another passenger, Jessica Huseman, tweeted photographs of the inside of the flight after the turbulence, showing spilled coffee all over the place.

Huseman also tweeted how the passengers used their fleece blankets to mop the ceiling of the plane after drinks went flying during the disturbance. She also wrote that during the violent shaking, a flight attendant dislocated his shoulder.

Another passenger, Ian Smith of South Philadelphia, shared his experience of the flight with WPVI, an ABC-affiliate.

He said: "Thirty minutes out. They were giving us our drinks. The flight attendants were in the last couple rows when they said 'fasten your seat belts.' And then they said for the flight attendants to get to their seats, and they didn't even have time. It started shaking, then it took a big drop. Babies screaming, people in front of us hitting the ceiling."

In its statement to PennLive, the airline said: "American Airlines flight 759 from Athens, Greece to Philadelphia International Airport briefly encountered severe turbulence shortly before landing safely in Philadelphia. The seatbelt sign was on at the time. Three passengers and seven crew members were transported to a local hospital for evaluation. We are taking care of our passengers and our crew members at this time and want to thank our team members for keeping our passengers safe."
