A Delta airplane was diverted to Eisenhower National Airport after a crew member suffered an unknown medical issue.

It happened just before 6:00 p.m. Friday.  KSN News reports that Delta flight 2924 traveling from Salt Lake City to Nashville had to make an unexpected landing.

The aircraft was carrying 148 passengers and a crew of six.  They were first told that they would be put on another flight at around 10:00 p.m. Friday, but that was later changed to a 7:30 a.m. flight leaving on Saturday morning.

The crew member who suffered the medical issue was reported to have walked off the plane, after EMS had looked them over.  That person was taken to an area hospital, but their condition was not known.
