An air ambulance had to make an emergency landing at Lal Bahadur Shastri Airport in Uttar Pradesh, India, on February 17.
The incident happened when the plane was transporting a suspected swine flu patient, Antoinette Joy, from Sonbhadra district to Delhi. Authorities said the decision for emergency landing was made after the patient’s condition worsened.
The plane landed safely and the patient was immediately transferred to a local private hospital.
Authorities said the plane was chartered by the patient’s husband Malcolm Single. The couple hails from Australia and works for a multinational company in Sonbhadra district.
