Narrative:
An airline passenger flight was descending into the airport terminal area from 36,000 feet, with the seat belt sign on. Approximately 25,000 feet, the captain made a passenger announcement, and then told the flight attendants to prepare for landing. Shortly after the announcement, the airplane experienced moderate turbulence, and a flight attendant who had not yet sat down fell into a closet door and sustained a fractured ankle. Paramedics were called to meet the airplane at the gate, and the flight landed without further incidence. There was no significant meteorological information (SIGMET) issued, and there was no damage to the airplane.

Probable Cause: The in-flight encounter with turbulence in clouds resulting in a flight attendant being injured.
