She described the moment as “CHAOS,” saying “the turbulence kept on coming”.
Camila continued: “The @lufthansa flight you are seeing on the news today!!!! Yes that one. Thank God everyone was safe and ok. I must say everyone @marriottbonvoy by the airport of Washington where we had to divert to and spend the night was so kind!”
She then said her and hubby Matthew, 53, managed to make it to the hotel bar just before closing time before they were able to sleep well after the ordeal.
