A plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Buffalo, N.Y. on Wednesday after one passenger lost consciousness, amid crew concerns about the plane’s cabin pressure.
The SkyWest flight, operating under United Express Flight #5622, landed safely in Buffalo, where the passenger received medical treatment and was released.
The plane’s crew had reported an emergency pressurization problem before landing, the Federal Aviation Administration told the Associated Press. An airline spokesperson said the circumstances were under investigation and mechanics were inspecting the plane.
“There may have been early concerns regarding pressurization but there was no indication in the flight deck,” said SkyWest spokesperson Marissa Snow in an emailed statement.
The flight departed from Chicago’s O’Hare airport at 9:32 a.m. EDT and made an emergency landing in Buffalo around noon, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.
SkyWest said it was currently working to connect the 75 passengers on a flight to their original destination of Hartford, Conn.
