Delta Airlines flightAn airline flight that was on its way from Iowa to Detroit had to go for an emergency landing owing to a sudden loss of cabin pressure on Thursday morning at Mitchell International Airport where one of the passengers was taken to a hospital for an eye injury.

 

The SkyWest flight was operating as Delta Connection and had left Cedar Rapids around 7 a.m.

 

It was travelling to Detroit but then ended up landing in Milwaukee a short while after 8 a.m.

 

A spokeswoman for SkyWest, Marissa Snow mentioned in an email that the plane was actually a 50-passenger Bombardier CRJ200. It was carrying 38 passengers and three crews had landed safely. She also went on to add that the mechanical crews were investigating the reason as to why the cabin had suddenly lost pressure.

 

And the airline had assisted the passengers to continue their journey on an alternative airplane.

 

A female passenger was taken to the hospital as per Snow. Where she was checked for ear pain. Later, she resumed her travels. Another passenger on the flight told a news media agency that the woman suffered a burst eardrum during the descent.

 

The passenger who had said that he was flying for business and refused to be identified said that oxygen masks need to be deployed and the plane’s interior had got very warm.

 

And also, the air smelled bad.

 

He also said that he rented a car and was driving to his final destination. Online records show that the flight later left Milwaukee for Detroit around 2.30 p.m.

 

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration mentioned that the agency is currently investigating the incident.
