United Airline Flight Makes Emergency Landing in New Mexico After Co-Pilot Passes Out
Having a bad day at work? At least you didn't pass out flying a plane.
United Airlines flight 1614 was scheduled to make a landing in San Francisco from Houston, but there was a slight problem and the flight had to make an emergency landing at the Albuquerque airport.
The captain of the flight called in the emergency landing after reporting to traffic control that the co-pilot had fallen unconscious. The plane landed safely at the Albuquerque airport where the co-pilot walked off the plane and was taken to an area hospital. No word on his condition but it was suspected he had an underlying medical condition.
United Airlines continued on after another pilot was assigned the flight and the passengers made it safely to their San Francisco destination.
