Turkish Airlines Plane Makes Priority Landing in Istanbul
The Boeing 737-800 was flying from Sivas, Turkey, when an asthma patient passenger fell ill mid-air. The pilot then contacted the air traffic control, saying “Our asthma patient passenger has low blood pressure. We have doctor in the cabin. Doctor is frequently checking the blood pressure. If it possible we would like to land on as soon as possible sir.”
The plane landed uneventfully. It is believed that the patient’s condition had become better during landing.
