That number was later updated to 37 by emergency officials in Honolulu. They told reporters 30 people were transported to local hospitals, nine with serious injuries and 21 with minor injuries. Those people have since been treated and released, according to Air Canada spokesperson Angela Mah. The remaining seven decided against being transported to hospital. There were neck and back injuries, head injuries, and lacerations, officials said, adding that those affected range in age from children to the elderly.
