Hyd flight makes emergency landing

A Hyderabad-bound Indigo flight from Bagdogra in West Bengal made an emergency landing at the Birsa Munda International Airport in Ranchi on Saturday morning after a 21-year-old passenger on board had a seizure. The patient was shifted to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (Rims) and doctors treating her said she is critical.

According to airport officials, the patient was travelling alone from Bagdogra to Hyderabad and had developed anxiety midway. She was given first aid and oxygen support by the airline staff on board and as her condition had deteriorated, the captain of the flight decided to make an emergency landing at the airport here.

Talking to TOI, airport director Vinod Kumar Sharma said, “The Bagdogra-Hyderabad Indigo flight (6E-619) landed at our airport around 11.30am after the air traffic control (ATC) was alerted about the medical emergency of a passenger. Our ATC officials ensured that the flight was given a safe passage to land and our operations team ensured that all necessary arrangements were made at the airport to shift the patient to a hospital immediately.” A team of doctors along with an ambulance took care of the passenger at the airport and she was shifted to Rims immediately after the doctors suggested immediate hospital treatment.
