UK-bound flight diverts to Bermuda
A UK-bound flight was forced to divert into Bermuda in the early hours of Wednesday after a female passenger became ill.
The 56-year-old woman and her husband disembarked the aircraft after landing at 12.30am and were rushed to hospital where she was treated for a “medical condition that required immediate attention”.
The TUI Boeing 787, which was carrying 290 passengers and nine crew, was on its way from Jamaica to Birmingham in England when it was forced to divert.
The aircraft and passengers remained on the island all day after a maintenance issue was discovered and because crew had completed their maximum number of shift hours.
The passengers and crew were taken to local hotels before the plane finally departed for Birmingham at just before 8pm.
