OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta resumed flight Friday after being diverted to Oklahoma City a day earlier.
The airline said in a statement that the flight was diverted “out of an abundance of caution due to a medical problem on board.”
The passengers said KOCO-TV that at least three flight attendants began to feel unwell during the flight on Thursday.
“They told us they were having trouble breathing and had some heat nausea,” passenger Emmy Kelly said. “They didn’t give us much information.”
“The lead flight attendant was actually having trouble breathing at some point,” said another passenger, Greg Everett. “She was sitting up and wearing the oxygen mask.”
Emergency Medical Services Authority spokesman Adam Paluka said three people were transported by ambulance from the airport to a hospital. Their conditions were not disclosed.
The Boeing 757 plane landed at Will Rogers World Airport shortly before 6 p.m., according to flight tracking website FlightAware.
Delta said in the statement that the flight resumed shortly before noon on Friday.
