Flight diverts for emergency

A passenger on a United Airlines flight was taken to hospital this morning after the aircraft diverted to Bermuda for a medical emergency.

Flight 1162 from Puerto Rico to Newark in New Jersey landed at LF Wade International Airport at 7.25am and was met by the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.

Fire service spokesperson Sergeant Jamal Albuoy said: “One passenger, a 55-year-old male, was assessed and treated by our EMTs and transported to the hospital via ambulance for further medical attention.”

Less expensive: Air fares are likely to fall next year, thanks to cheaper fuel
