‘Just my luck, after last night. Just got on the rescheduled flight and the pilot’s saying we have 45 minutes of turbulence, getting out of Washington,’ she revealed.

‘Just my luck. Wish me luck,’ Alves McConaughey concluded.

Her husband Matthew McConaughey, who she married in 2012, made headlines last week when she shared a snap of him cutting their 10-year-old son Livingston’s hair.

Their oldest son, 14-year-old Levi, was also there looking on along with the family dog in the snap, which got nearly 70K likes.

The scary flight incident came just months after she suffered a neck injury after falling down a flight of stairs.

‘Sh** Happens. I am ok but… Don’t fall people…don’t fall…’ Alves McConaughey began in her caption from early November.

‘Ladies hold your long dresses up or lose pants up when going by down the stairs!!’ she continued. 

‘Wind blew mine as I was midair, pant fabric wrapped around my shoe and down the floor I went…A silly fall, turned into not so silly neck situation, recovery time ahead…’ she concluded.

Earlier on Thursday, one of the other passengers aboard Lufthansa Flight 469 – Susan Zimmerman – opened up about her experiences on Good Morning America.

‘I don’t think any of the people on board – the cabin crew – I don’t think any of them have experienced anything like this,’ passenger Susan Zimmerman said.

‘This was shocking. It was kind of like you’re in slow motion. You just see everything – like in a movie where you see everything lift and all of a sudden it just comes right back down,’ she said.

Zimmerman added the 4,000-foot drop, ‘felt like five seconds of falling and then there was shaking.’

Many of the passengers weren’t wearing their seatbelts at the time of the unexpected turbulence, since the seat belt sign was not on at the time of the turbulence.

ABC News Aviation contributor John Nance added, ‘This is the very reason that pilots warn you from the cockpit to keep your seatbelts fastened, because if you hit something like this and you’re not strapped in, you could go flying. 

The flight landed at Washington-Dulles International Airport around 9pm, just three hours into the 10.5-hour flight to Germany. Seven passengers were taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

One man, who claimed his wife was on the flight, said ‘people who didn’t have their seat belts fastened got hurt mostly cause it came as surprise.’
