As reported by the AvHerald...

"A United Boeing 737-700, registration N23708 performing flight UA-1676 from Denver,CO to Billings,MT (USA) with 114 passengers and 5 crew, was descending towards Billings about 15 minutes prior to landing when the crew declared emergency reporting a flight attendant had been badly injured when the aircraft experienced severe turbulence, the flight attendant was bleeding very badly and they couldn't stop it, medical services were requested to meet the aircraft at the gate. Upon contacting Billings approach frequency the crew indicated they did not have ATIS and requested approach to read the weather information, subsequently opted for a landing on runway 28R. At 13:21L (20:21Z) the aircraft touched down safely on runway 28R about 15 minutes after declaring emergency and taxied to the gate."

About half way through the recording you can hear the approach controller referring to the emergency aircraft as "United 1679" and not 1676...didn't seem to be an issue though...
