Shortly after departure, the flight attendant stood up from her jumpseat to begin beverage service. She slipped in the main cabin door floor area and injured her left arm. The flight attendant was unable to perform her crew duties; however, an airline pilot, who was a passenger on the flight, assisted in maintaining cabin safety. The flight attendant reported that there was deicing fluid on the floor, which made the surface slippery. Deice fluid was present on the ramp areas surrounding the airplane.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The presence of deice fluid on the floor, which resulted in a slip hazard and an injury to the flight attendant.
