As for this particular flight attendant, Miller said reattachment surgery was sucessful. The employee was released from the hospital. Certainly it is not too early to reassess the safety of cabin equipment and they way these trolleys are used to make sure risks are minimized.

It was a beautiful day in October without a shadow of impending doom, when planespotters in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany turned out to photograph the last flight of a Transall C-160 military airplane. Expecting the plane to land on the runway they got the shock of their lives when it touched down hundreds of feet early, coming close to crushing a few of them.
This photo from Bild-Zeitung is actually more illuminating than the video, but if you want to see it in motion, try this, and the one below.
