VOLGOGRAD, January 12 (Itar-Tass) —— A passenger Boeing 737 had to make an emergency landing at an airport in Russia’s southern city of Volgograd after one of its passengers felt unwell, a spokesman in the Volgograd region transport prosecutor’s office told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The jet making a flight from Grozny to Surgut landed in Volgograd at 11:30 Moscow time. Immediately after the landing, the sick man, a 53-year-old resident of North Caucasian republic of Dagestan, was taken to hospital in an ambulance. “Preliminary diagnosis is an oncological disease,” the spokesman said.
The jet with more than 90 passengers continued its flight.
