O’Hare-Bound Flight Diverted to Ohio With Sick Passengers

Four passengers apparently fainted on an American Airlines flight headed to Chicago from Washington D.C. because of a possible issue with cabin pressure.

An American Airlines spokesman told NBC News that a couple flight attendants got dizzy as the plane reached 28,000 feet and asked the pilots to drop the oxygen masks just in case.

The pilots began looking for a place to land and Flight 547 diverted to Dayton International Airport, spokesman Ed Martell said.

Martell said it’s not known whether the passengers fainted because of the lack of oxygen or because of the excitement of the moment.


Prior to the Great Flood of Noah’s day, the atmosphere was heavier. That phenomena is coming back as the earth changes in climate.
